Video shows seven-time F1 champion Schumacher’s skiing accident



For adventure athletes, it’s the new essential: a video of their exploits. On Wednesday, the prosecutor and investigators examining what caused the retired Formula One great’s crash in Meribel told of what they had learned so far from two minutes of images, which were not made public.

“He was skiing between three and six meters (10 and 20 feet) away from the regular ski trail,” Albertville prosecutor Patrick Quincy told a news conference at the Palace of Justice in the 1992 Winter Olympics host city.

“At one point, his skis struck the top of a rock slightly visible above the snow. He loses his balance and his body falls ahead of the rock. His head hits a rock located approximately 3.5 meters (11.5 feet) below. The first rock and the second one that he hit with his head are eight meters (26 feet) away from the border of the ski trail.”
