Michael Schumacher is no longer in a coma, his management announced today.
The seven times world champion continues his rehabilitation, but has left Grenoble hospital and the high dependency unit where he was taken on December 29th following his skiing accident at Meribel, France.
There will be no further bulletins on his rehabilitation and his family and management plan to issue no more information about his whereabouts or his condition.
The statement said simply:
“Michael has left the CHU Grenoble to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore.
“His family would like to explicitly thank all his treating doctors, nurses and therapists in Grenoble as well as the first aiders at the place of the accident, who did an excellent job in those first months.
“The family also wishes to thank all the people who have sent Michael all the many good wishes to Michael. We are sure it helped him.
“For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye.”
