Formula One legend Michael Schumacher suffered a ‘severe head injury’ while skiing on December 29, 2013. He hit a rock on while skiing with his then 14-year-old son Mick in the French Alps.
After a horror crash – he was airlifted to Grenoble Hospital requiring ‘immediate neurosurgical intervention’ and underwent two life-saving operations. After that Schumacher was in Coma.
But since then there has been no official word on his recovery. There were reports earlier this week that the former F1 driver is not bedridden anymore but nothing is official yet.
On the fifth anniversary of the accident, the Daily Mail revealed that he is recovering well and now has come up with a report which says what it costs each week to care for the German.
German is actually having extensive nursing care at home and keep that in mind with therapy they estimate the cost to be more than £50,000 per week. According to reports – his personal healthcare bills have exceeded £20million, due to him being looked after at home.
Earlier, close relatives have reportedly spoken with the French magazine ‘Paris Match’ and given a brief insight into the 49-year-old’s current well-being.
The magazine has quoted one relative as saying: “When you put him in his wheelchair facing the beautiful panorama of the mountains overlooking the lake, Michael sometimes cries.”
