`Lifesaver` ski helmet returned to `comatose` Schumacher’s family

London, Apr 18: The broken ski helmet of Formula One legend Michael Schumacher, which saved during a horrific accident at the French Alps, has reportedly been handed back to his family.

The seven-time retired German world champion has been in a medically-induced coma since that accident on December 29 at the French ski report of Meribel, although recent reports indicate that he is showing ‘signs of consciousness’.

According to the Daily Star, investigating authorities in France gave Schumacher’s ace’s helmet back to his wife Corinna after they declared their investigation into the accident closed after it was ruled that there was no third party involvement in the fall.

The report mentioned that skis and helmet-mounted camera Schumacher was wearing have also been returned.

The news comes as a heated debate took place in the German media after two magazines claimed vital time was lost when Schumacher first suffered his injuries. (ANI)
