Journalist Tries to Play Schumacher’s Dad Aiming to Enter Hospital Room

As Michael Schumacher’s coma is prolonged, his family has to deal with more and more issues coming from outsiders who would do anything to get some new details on the F1 champion’s state. Schumacher’s manager and spokesperson Sabine Kehn recently said a person tried to impersonate Schumi’s father just to get into his hospital room.

The man is expected to be a journalist who was reportedly trying to snap a picture of Schumacher. Apparently, trying to pass as Michael’s father, Rolf, seemed like a nice shortcut to success for him. You can see the actual Rolf Schumacher in the image above.

This comes after another journalist (well, at least that’s what these people are calling themselves) tried to pull a similar trick back in December. The man dressed himself as a priest trying to enter the hospital room where the F1 champ lay in comma.

Fortunately though, the latest reports indicate Schumacher has been showing slight signs of awareness, as he has performed small interactions with the surroundings. Michael’s family, as the rest of the world for that matter, hopes to see him moved into a rehabilitation facility, while the next step would be the obvious return to his house where his wife Corinna has reportedly invested about $17 million (EUR12 million) in medical hardware.
