Formula One legend, Michael Schumacher remains paralyzed after the major accident occurred while skiing. Recently, a German magazine published an article claiming the Schumacher is now able to walk a few steps. Bunte reported that it had got a source from an unnamed friend of seven-time world champion about his progress in recovery.
Michael Schumacher’s family lawyer Felix Damm filed a lawsuit against German magazine, Bunte. Felix also explained in detail about the extent of Schumacher’s injuries. A family of the legendary Champion is suing Bunte after quoting an unnamed friend claimed “Michael is very thin. But he can once again walk a little with the help of his therapists. He manages to make a couple of steps. And he can also raise an arm.”
Being was one of the most successful drivers in the entire league of Ferrari, Schumacher suffered only one accident in his entire career, in 1999, and even that was the league’s fault.
47 year old spent six months in a coma after head injury and returned to his house in Switzerland for rehabilitation. Mr. Felix confirmed that Schumacher “cannot walk” more than two and a half years since the accident.
Sabine Kehm, Schumacher’s agent, released a statement denying the story, saying: “Unfortunately we are forced by a recent press report to clarify that the assertion that Michael could move again is not true,” she said. “Such speculation is irresponsible because, given the seriousness of his injuries, his privacy is crucial for Michael. Unfortunately, they also give false hopes to many involved people.”
Ex-Ferrari chief Luca de Montezemolo reportedly mentioned in the earlier, that he did not have “good news” concerning the condition of Schumacher.
