A horrific skiing accident left Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher bedridden in 2013, and his condition for the longest time was closely guarded by friends and family. However, for the fans and followers of the icon wishing him well, there's finally some good news on the ex-F1 driver's condition. According to a recent report by German publication, Bravo, Schumacher is said to be "not bedridden or surviving on tubes" any longer. Instead, the Benetton, Ferrari and Mercedes driver is said to be moved to a clinic in Dallas, Texas that specialises in treating brain injuries. The ace driver will turn 50 on January 3, 2019.
Schumacher was critically injured on December 29, 2013, when he hit his head against a rock while skiing with his son Mick in the French Alps. The accident was described as fatal, had it not been for the helmet he was wearing. Michael's family and friends have closely guarded his condition ever since the accident, honouring his life as he would've lived otherwise. The F1 star was known to keep professional and private lives separate even during his championship winning days, which is why the family has chosen to speak very less about the sports legend condition post the accident.
The report further claims that Michael has ben receiving medical at his home that amounts to 50,000 pounds (around ₹ 44.79 lakh) per week. Furthermore, German archbishop Georg Ganswein who is close to the Schumacher family was quoted saying the legend "senses that loving people are around him". Ganswein had paid a visit to see Michael in 2016. He further said although Schumacher's face has "become a little fuller" the record-breaking driver still looks the same as he did when last seen by his millions of fans.
Post the accident, Michael underwent two life-saving operations at the University of Grenoble Hospital where he remained for five months before coming out of his induced coma. He was later shifted to the University Hospital in Lausanne. He was later shifted to his home in Gland near Lake Geneva in Switzerland. There were reports in 2016 suggesting that Michael was able to walk with the aid of therapists, but his team denied the claims.
