Michael Schumacher suffers severe brain injury
December 30 , 2013
Formula One champion Michael Schumacher has been hospitalized after being severely injured in a skiing accident in the French Alps.
Initial reports suggested that his injuries were only "relatively serious" but hospital officials later said Schumacher's condition as a result of hitting his head on a rock, was critical when he arrived at the hospital and required a surgery immediately.
Schumacher has been seriously injured a number of times in past. He broke his leg during a crash in 1999 and was seriously hurt in another accident in 2009. He drove for three seasons after leaving the sport for a few years and retired again last year.
