Family informed that only a miracle will save Schumacher


Early last week news on Michael Schumacher’s condition appeared positive as it was reported that the Formula 1 legend was taken off a respirator, but it turns out that the situation is very bleak as his chances of recovery are very slim.

Official news is restricted but those close to the family and the story reveal that the diagnosis continues to be negative.

A senior German journalist following the case said, “He is in terrible shape but until the family issue a statement we cannot write about it. The family have, we are told, been informed that only a miracle can bring him back now.”

Doctors treating Schumacher at Grenoble University Hospital were hoping for signs of recovery such as eye lids fluttering, finger movement or any sign that he was aware of his environment.

“This has not happened,” a source close to the family told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

And added, “On Sunday his wife Corinna spent her 45th birthday at his bedside with their children Gina Marie and Mick, his brother Ralf and his father Rolf Schumacher.”

“They talked and talked and prayed for him to acknowledge their presence. But he remains comatose with tubes feeding him, supplying him with air, giving him medicine and removing waste from his body.”

“The doctors have given it to them straight. There is little hope left that he will come out of this. Miracles happen, of course, and as a wealthy man he has the best care money can buy. But all the money in the world cannot fix what has happened to him.”

Schumacher has been in an induced coma since 29 December, wheN he fell during a family skiing holiday and injured his head severely. (GP247)

    Wait for the doctors to “officially” comment.
    Not knowing the full spectrum of the incident, I cannot comment but it feels wrong.

  • Matthias O’keeffe

    The doctors have already told the family.. Can’t you read the title, moron..

  • Devesh

    Oh no! :(

    This seems unfair. Such a nice guy… and how life changed in an instant for him and his family. Lets pray for a miracle!!! Please God, bring him back! Please!

    Allegedly, reportedly. Guess you were too busy calling names to bother reading the article.

    Not the news we want to see but like his family we shall hope until there is no more. I believe that all the fans that have a heart will continue to hope and pray until the last moment and perhaps a bit longer.

    His family has already said not to listen to any reports unless they are announced by them or his doctors. This is just another pointless article designed to spread negativity into our world

  • Splatterdbastard

    I’ll not give this space-filler-article any serious consideration until I hear it from the Schumachers,
    However, he has been in a coma for a pretty good amount of time………..

    “He is in terrible shape but until the family issue a statement we cannot write about it.
    I think that the reporter just did.
