Four days after Michael Schumacher woke up to the world from his coma, neurology specialist Erich Riederer has declared that the seven-times Formula One champion “will remain an invalid for the rest of his life”.
“He will remain an invalid all his life and will always remain dependent on others’ help,” Riederer was quoted as saying by The Independent.
Earlier, on June 16, Schumacher left the hospital in Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation.
The 45-year-old German driver was hospitalized with severe head injuries after his Dec. 29 ski accident, which split his helmet as he crashed into rocks on the slope at the Meribel ski resort in the French Alps.
Doctors in Grenoble put him into a coma to rest his brain and decrease swelling, and they operated to remove blood clots, but some were too deeply embedded.
