Some say he has compound eyes, and that he's also wanted for the murder of Sonny Bono...

Hopefully he has been treated in time. That's the critical thing with head injuries, as Natasha Richardson found out when she refused treatment after hitting her head skiing.

That sucks. Hope he recovers.

I wish the best for him and his family. After such a long career delighting many fans, it's tragic that he didn't get to enjoy much of a retirement.

Skiing officially more dangerous than piloting a giant combustible fuel container over 100 mph.

Best wishes to him. Get well soon, Mr. Schumacher.

Just like the German guy on GLP  predicted.

My brother used to work for him and even did an overnight radio show for GLP for awhile. My brother is incoherent on the best of days. And yeah, that guy is exactly what you'd imagine a guy who owns GLP to be. Large and drunk, mostly.

One article I saw said he was on a helicopter within minutes of the accident.  That fast seems unlikely, but it's plausible he got to a center relatively quickly.

Skiing off-trail sure is.  Which is what he was doing.

For Schuey it may be that way. But I'm not sure if there are more skiers or current and former F1 drivers in the world to make a proper comparison.

Was he trying to stop Alonso from getting a quicker run down the hill?

The crazy thing is that he was wearing a helmet:   "Schumacher was wearing a helmet when he fell and hit his head against a rock, his manager Sabine Kehm said."  That must have been some fall.  Perhaps off the ski lift?

Did it say single-digit number of minutes?  Because 59 is technically a number of minutes.

Off-trail in the French Alps.  Could have been anything up to and including an entire farking mountain.

He was skiing out of bounds, which while fun can be very very dangerous.  I am unfamiliar with the mountain he was skiing on, but most out of bounds skiers do some cliff jumping, which would be the equivalent falling off a lift if you land wrong 50-60 foot cliffs are not uncommon.

Teehee. Piste.

I have occasionally skied pissed-off, but never off-piste.

I started wearing one when I was learning snowboarding in 1999. Wearing one ever since. Skied for 27 years without one.

Where are you hearing this? BBC homepage calls him 'critical'.
Also, he could be a complete vegetable (but alive) and that could considered "Not life threatening"

All this time, and I never suspected Gambon had a rubble area nearby.

The article I saw said 8.  That seems awfully fast to get patrol to him, evaluate, call for the airlift, and get the heli and him to someplace mutually reachable, but I've never skied over there, so maybe that's plausible.

Yeah that wasn't the updated part, the life flight out was the updated part, don't forget Natasha Richardson(Liam's wife) was walking and talking fine before dying after suffering a similar fall.

Snowboarded from 1995 until 2007 without a helmet, without incident, because I never set foot in a damn terrain park.  The first time I went into a terrain park and tried to "50/50 a funbox" (I'm 34 years old, and I really shouldn't be saying shiat like that) my board slid right out from under me, and I hit my head.  Been wearing a helmet ever since.

Fark terrain parks.

Also fark this "winter" we're having in upstate NY.  Upper 30s and rain, wheeeeee.

I've had the same Boeri helmet since I was 14 (29 now).  I feel absolutely naked without it.

Dude, helmets wear out. Padding gets compressed and bacteria grow in there. Treat yourself to a new helmet. I just did last year and what a difference all those years makes. Progress!

Plus, my new one is made to integrate with my goggles (same brand) and the fit is amazing. So comfortable & seamless.

As a member of the ski patrol, they aren't dorky... and they're far warmer than a toque.

I was streaming either BBC or Radio Australia last night when the first reports came in. They said that it had to be minor since he was airlifted to a local hospital, not a regional center where surgery was common. I am so sorry to hear they were wrong.
 
2013-12-29 09:41:32 PM
There are 2 kinds of intracranial bleeds, eidural and subdural. Natasha Richardson had an epidual bleed and when she rejected the ambulance it pressured her entire brain onto her brainstem in what's called a herniation and she died. Sarah Burke the Canadian woman Olympian who had the half pipe accident and died in Utah in 2011had a subdural bleed from a ruptured vertebral artery and was essentially dead on impact. If he was walking and talking then it's most likely he had an epidural bleed and if he didn't herniate he should survive. The fact that he was transferred from one hospital to another is worrisome.
