Drs give up on efforts to revive Michael Schumacher

Everyone had such hopes on his return .............. :(

Doctors give up on efforts to revive Michael Schumacher: Report
Michael Schumacher has been in a state of induced coma for close to seven weeks after a tragic skiing accident. Doctors have reportedly run out of options to revive him.

Any hopes of reviving F1 legend Michael Schumacher from his state of induced coma seems to have ended. Doctors attending to him have reportedly given up efforts to revive him, close to seven weeks after the retired champion met with a tragic skiing accident.

According to a report in German magazine Focus, doctors at the University Hospital of Grenoble in France have run out of options after repeated efforts till last week. However, no official reason has been given yet while Schumacher's family has not confirmed the reports either.

The 45-year-old German was put in a state of induced coma after he met with a skiing accident in a French resort on December 29. He had crashed into a rock so hard that the impact cracked his helmet. He had been skiing with his son and a group of friends.

After surgery to reduce bleeding and bruising, he was placed in a medically induced coma and his body temperature lowered to reduce the risk of further damage.

Schumacher's family had announced on January 30 that the drugs used to keep him in a coma were being reduced with a view to bringing him back to consciousness. The efforts though have been without results.

"He is sleeping, he looks normal and he showed a few responses with his mouth," the German Bild daily quoted Schumacher's friend and former teammate Felipe Massa as saying on Saturday. (Full report here)

incredibly sad. I wasn't a huge fan of his while he was racing, but he had still had such a huge impact on me. Sincere condolences to his wife and children. Hoping for something miraculous here.

Re: Drs give up on efforts to revive Michael Schumacher

Sad news.

Just to understand it all....they medically induce a coma and have been reducing the drugs or have now eliminated them altogether and he hasn't responded -- come out of the coma on his own? Prognosis isn't encouraging at all. :(
