Reports from Germany claim stricken Michael Schumacher has been moved in to rehab at the hospital where he has been treated since his catastrophic ski crash, last year. In what is being interpreted as a gloomy sign for the 45-year-old’s prognosis, Schumacher has left the intensive care unit at Grenoble University Hospital in the French Alps. A German publication reported the news. Schumacher’s spokesman did not respond to media enquiries about the seven-time Formula One champion’s present location.
Schumacher’s transfer to a special rehabilitation clinic is being prepared and the chances of full recovery have dropped.
Report in Bunte magazine
Schumacher has spent almost six months in a coma after cracking his head on a rock while skiing in the resort of Meribel. Fans and former colleagues hoping for a recovery were told in April there had been “moments of awakening”. As usual with Schumacher’s condition and circumstances, verifiable information is at a premium because the family do not want to feed the high public interest about his plight.
