Breaking News: Indian Supreme Court Gives Insight into Michael Schumacher’s Health Status

On January 18, 2023, Michael Schumacher, the legendary F1 driver, was referred to in a major court case in India over the “living will” argument. The Supreme Court in India gave a brief update on his current condition, which has been kept private by the Schumacher family since his skiing accident in December 2013.

Schumacher, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time, was skiing off-piste with his son, Mick, when he fell and hit his head on a rock. The accident was a severe one, and Schumacher was rushed to a hospital where he was placed in a medically induced coma. He remained in the coma until June of the following year, and the extent of his injuries and the progress of his recovery have been kept very private by his family.

It is known that Schumacher has been receiving treatment at his home in Switzerland, but updates on his condition have been scarce. The F1 community and fans around the world have been eagerly waiting for any news about the German driver’s health. However, the Schumacher family has chosen to keep the details of his condition private, which has led to speculation and rumors about his health.

According to the Indian Express, it was stated in the Supreme Court that Schumacher is still in a coma.

“Michael Schumacher, he is still in a coma, we don’t know what will happen, if some stem cell research will revive him. He is still alive. What is critical illness for an ordinary person of normal wealth, is not critical for Michael Schumacher.”

Schumacher’s case was used as an example by those fighting against the legalisation of a directive to choose to end medical treatment. The reports also stated that scientist Stephen Hawking was also used as an example. The case highlighted the ethical and legal implications of end-of-life care and the right to autonomy in medical treatment decisions.
