According to a statement released by the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Grenoble, the French hospital where the seven-time Formula One world champion is currently in, Schumacher underwent emergency surgery from his injuries. The injuries were so severe that the statement described it as "head trauma with coma, which required immediate neurosurgical treatment."
Schumacher was skiing at a resort in Meribel, France with his 14-year old son when he lost control in the slopes and hit his head on a rock. The accident occurred at 11:07 AM CET and while initial reports indicated that he was conscious immediately after the injury, it appears that his condition has taken a turn for the worst since then.
Our thoughts and prayers to Michael Schumacher and his family and we pray that he recovers from this ordeal like a true champion that he is.
