Doctors starting to wake up Schumacher

  • Michael Schumacher's doctors have begun trying to wake up him from the medically induced coma he's been in since last month. 

    The former Formula One Champion critically injured himself in a skiing accident when he fell and hit his head on a rock. 

    "Michael's sedation is being reduced in order to allow the start of the waking up process which may take a long time," his manager said. The 45-year-old was kept under artificial sedation and a low body temperature in order to reduce the swelling in his brain. 

    Experts mentioned that the news is a good sign and the first 24 hours are critical. "It means they have probably seen the pressure in his skull reduced," a brain trauma expert said.
