Schumi 'unlikely to wake up'

01 April 2014, 17:45

Cape Town - Corinna Schumacher, the wife of seven-time Formula One world champion Michael Schumacher, is reportedly building a £10 million medical suite at the couple’s home.

According to the EuroSport website, Schumacher, 45, has been in an artificially induced coma since his skiing accident over three months ago, with experts saying it is unlikely he will ever wake up, an Intensive Care Unit is now being built at the couple's £25m home at Lake Geneva, Switzerland.

Corinna is delving into the family's £500 million fortune to build a suite equipped with high-tech medical facilities at their mansion.

Every day since his accident on December 29, 2013, Schumacher’s family has performed a 150 mile round-trip to be by his side, but the pressure for bed space may soon build at the Grenoble University Hospital in France, leading Schumacher’s family to make preparations to bring him home.

“Miracles happen, of course,” says a 25-year-old friend of the family, “and as a wealthy man he has the best care money can buy.

“But all the money in the world cannot fix what has happened to him. The family are making arrangements for a future of permanent immobility.
