He was initially taken to Moutiers hospital so it's possible that he was induced there and then transferred to Grenobles.

Initial reports, both official and unofficial, are often mixed in instances like this.

Can't know for sure at this point, since he was in another hospital before that.

Very worrisome nonetheless. I will anxiously be awaiting further news, hoping for the best. I'll also make sure to check out the local press tomorrow morning, as this is taking place very close to home.

I can only hope that this means his life is not in danger. Anything better is a positive now.

Sky News had a neurosurgeon on and this is what he said (I've paraphrased it):

Coma means there is a range of things that could have happened: brain swelling, brain haemorrage, a blood clot within the brain or on the surface would need to be removed. There might need to have been an intercranial pressure monitor or sometimes a large piece of the skull is removed to allow the brain to swell to minimise the pressure on vital structures. Suspects that he had a lucid interval which suggests it is not as serious as it could have been - those who are immediately unconscious fare far worse - but this is still serious. Any potential swelling needs to be treated. Helmet can often minimise the severity of the injury which is sustained.

For more, Hartstein's Twitter account is very informative.

Right, I haven't considered this. Hopefully we will have some better news at 11 am.

Also, reports say Brawn and Todt are by his side now.

He remains in an artifical coma, in critical condition.

The doctors said they are working very hard and trying to gain more time. But they don't know yet what direction they'll follow.

Here we go.

"When he arrived he had a serious brain injury and was in a coma," says the first speaker.

"He still remains in a critical condition."

And the professor adds: "He was immediately operated on after the first scan."


Quote:
10:01 am
The professor adds: "For the moment we are not able to express ourselves in regards to Michael Schumacher's future.

"He's been given an artificial coma.

"His situation is considered to be critical.

"He was operated on only once.

"We're not able to speak about after-effects, just treatment. We're working hour-by-hour."


Quote:
10:04 am
"His condition is considered to be extremely serious and he's intensive care.

"We're working altogether day and night by his bedside but it's far too early in terms of prognosis.

"His helmet did protect him."

Will it help that he was a sportsman?

"Well, that's possible, yes."

He adds: "We are in contact with the family - his family are by his bedside.

"We don't intend to carry out a second operation - we don't feel it's necessary at the moment."
