Michael Schumacher’s medical records ‘stolen,’ offered for sale

Medical records purportedly belonging to Michael Schumacher have been stolen and are being touted for sale to the media, it has been claimed. Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm has warned potential buyers that purchase or publication of the documents is a criminal matter. Kehm said she was unable to say whether the documents belonged to the driver, but said they were “clearly stolen.” She said Schumacher’s managers will “press for criminal charges and damages” if the documents and data are made public or even referenced in a report. After waking from a coma, the 45-year-old Formula One great was last week transferred from a French hospital to one in Lausanne, Switzerland, to continue his recovery. He was placed into the medically induced coma after suffering a serious head injury in a skiing accident in the French Alps resort of Meribel on Dec. 29. The seven-time F1 champion was reportedly travelling at speeds of up to 97 kilometres per hour when the accident happened.
