    • Seven time Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher in a coma and critical condition after brain hemorrhage

      BenzBoost is sorry it has the duty of reporting this tragic news. Seven time Formula 1 champion and former Mercedes-Benz F1 driver and brand ambassador Michael Schumacher is in a coma. Schumacher suffered a cerebral hemorrhage as a result of an accident sustained while skiing in France. He struck his head on a rock and was responsive and talking after the initial impact. Some time after that there was bleeding in his brain.

      He is in critical condition and in a coma. He was wearing a helmet at the time of impact and airlifted to the hospital. It is not known at this time if he will recover or wake from the coma. More information will come in the following weeks.

        They say his reflexes were so fast it was like he was stopping time!

        Just a little update here, he is now in a stable and non-critical condition, but things are not looking too good.

        Meanwhile, a leading neurosurgeon has claimed that Schumacher will not be the same if he wakes up from his coma.

        So a Dr whose only knowledge of his current condition is the what he has read in the press just like us? I'd say his comments are speculative at best. In the meantime I'll keep wishing him the best and rely on someone like this to listen to for information:

        I'm trying to understand what he's saying. He'll be mentally slower? Or perhaps not even have full capacities? If so that's tragic and not even really life for him.

        Well they are saying the same things. From your article:

        It is highly unlikely that when Michael and his family are finished with hospitals, finished with rehab centres, he will be the same Michael we had known until that Sunday.

        Yes, he could lose all motor and sensory functions, depending on what part of the brain was damaged. He might not know who he is anymore. For example, frontal lobe injuries are known to modify behavior/personality. Very tragic either way and very difficult for the family.

        True - but the times article was a bit more definite in it's delivery. Regardless, it's all speculation and no one knows for sure what will happen. What we do know is that he will require lots of rehab at minimum.

        That's horrible.

        Guy had everything in the world. There's times where I'm not satisfied but I mean you can literally have everything and it can all end in a split second. Tragic.
