Witness: Schumacher was not riding very fast when skiing accident occurs

Schumacher skiing accident routeA skier and witness explanation of Michael Schumacher’s skiing accident in the French Alps last Sunday has revealed that, he was not riding very fast when his skiing accident occurs. And he explained that Schumacher had been going “at a leisurely pace a 20km/h max, not more”

The new witness recorded Schumi’s riding to his smartphone and accidentally captured the accident, currently this footage is only a proof of his unluckily accident.

“I had stopped to film his girlfriend on his smartphone and accidentally captured Schumacher a few hundred metres away in the background straying into an off-piste area and losing his balance. The witness added, who working as flight assistant from Essen in Germany.

The 35 old skier said he planned to hand the evidence to the Albertville prosecutor’s office in France, which is investigating the accident on the Meribel slopes last Sunday. Patrick Quincy, the Albertville prosecutor, told the Associated Press yesterday that French investigators were taking steps to obtain a copy of the video.

Even as other main thing, the Investigators are said to be in possession of a camera that was fixed to Schumacher’s helmet. It is unclear if the device was switched on at the time of the accident, and whether or not it was damaged by the impact.

A video purporting to show amateur footage of the accident has been circulating on social media, but the clip – titled “Video: Moment de l’accident de Michael Schumacher! (EXCLUSIF)” – contains a computer virus. When news of the accident first emerged last week, some newspapers reported that Schumacher had been travelling at up to 60mph.

Schumacher’s manager, Sabine Kehm, has fervently rejected this version of events, claiming that Schumi entered deep snow at relatively low speed shortly after stopping to help up a friend’s daughter who had fallen on the tracks.

She also denied suggestions that the family was reluctant to hand over the helmet camera. “It’s false. Only Michael’s health matters,” Kehm was quoted as saying in the French papers.
