Schumacher still 'in the wake up phase,' rep says

07 March 2014, 15:54

Paris - Michael Schumacher's spokeswoman says he is "still in the wake up phase" and that his medical situation is unchanged.

More than two months after a ski crash left the Formula One champion hospitalized with severe head injuries, his agent Sabine Kehm said Friday that the process of pulling him from the medically induced coma is still taking place.

Schumacher's family has released few details about his condition. Doctors operated to remove blood clots from his brain, but some were too deeply embedded. Neurologists not involved in his treatment say the chances of a full recovery for the 45-year-old are increasingly slim, given the coma's duration and the extent of his injuries.
