According to a media statement by Schumi's agent, Sabin Kehm, the septuple Formula 1 champion has been recently caught showing “moments of consciousness” after over three months of being in a coma following his skiing accident back in December 2013.
“We are on his side during his long and difficult fight, together with the team of the hospital in Grenoble. We would like to thank you all for the continuous sympathies. At the same time we again ask for understanding that we do not intend to disclose details.” concluded Ms. Kehm, quoted by the BBC.
The rather awesome news comes after the French doctors in charge of his case have been doing their best at trying to bring Schumacher out of his medically-induced coma.
The Formula 1 champion was skiing in the French Alps on December 29th, 2013, when he fell and hit his head on a rock, suffering a traumatic head injury. Having been operated twice, he has been in a medically-induced coma almost ever since.
About a month ago, legal investigators concluded that the skiing accident in which Schumi was involved has no legal repercussions and the event was deemed as being just an accident.
