'Comatose' Schumacher's condition 'improves slightly' than before

Johannesburg, Jan 7 : The condition of Formula One legend Michael Schumacher, who has been in a medically-induced coma since his skiing accident eight days ago, has reportedly 'improved slightly' than before.


Schumacher remains in a critical condition in hospital since the accident on December 29 in the French ski resort of Meribel, which left him with life-threatening injuries.

According to Sport24, however, a source said that there are small signs of improvement and the seven-time world champion's family and friends hope that he will pull through.

Earlier, doctors treating Schumacher said that he remained in a stable but critical condition, adding that he is being constantly monitored as he receives medical treatment.

Meanwhile, the report mentioned that investigators are focusing on the retired racer's speed when he fell and slammed his head on a rock on a small off-piste section, and are also examining whether the safety releases on Schumacher's skis operated properly in a probe aimed at determining responsibility for the accident.
