“Most of the team that is looking after Michael received training from our specialists. We are keeping track of the treatments carried out, continue being the spokespeople for him and are at his entire disposal”, assured the spokesman for the CHUV clinic in Lausana, Darcy Christen.
Schumacher suffered severe brain damage through a fall while he was skiing in the French Alpine ski resort, Méribel on 29th December, 2013. He was kept in an artificial coma until 16th June, when he was transferred from a hospital in Grenoble to the Lausana clinic.
