Interview with Schumacher’s manager: French investigators examining the cause of skiing accident

Schumacher's manager Sabine KehmMichael Schumacher remains stable after serious skiing accident, Thursday updates is French investigators examining the cause of world champ’s skiing accident intend to interview the driver’s manager over the coming days, according to the lead prosecutor.

On Tuesday, Schumacher’s manager Sabine Kehm rejected speculation that skiing at high speed may have caused the off-piste accident on Sunday just after 11am. She told reporters that he appeared to hit a rock and was “catapulted in the air”, falling “apparently head down” on to another rock.

Theguardian explained that, German newspaper Bild reports just before his accident, Schumacher had stopped to help up a friend’s daughter who had taken a tumble on the slopes. Schumacher had then set off into the area between the “biche” and “maudit” pistes at the Méribel skiing resort, where the accident occurred.

Prosecutor Patrick Quincy told the Dauphiné Libéré that “some rocks were visible and others weren’t. The only thing that we are sure of at this time is that Michael Schumacher lost his balance because of one of them before he fell.”

Schumacher had been using a rented pair of skis, not his own, and Bild speculated whether the athlete’s unfamiliarity with his equipment could have contributed to the accident. The impact from the fall was so fierce that it split his helmet in two.
