After 5 months, Schumacher comes out of coma, shifted out of hospital

Paris, June 16 (Reuters): Formula One ex-champion Michael Schumacher, who sustained severe head injuries in a ski accident in late 2013, is no longer in a coma and has left the French hospital where he was being treated since the accident, his spokeswoman said on Monday

“Michael has left the CHU Grenoble (hospital) to continue his long phase of rehabilitation. He is not in a coma anymore,” said a statement from spokeswoman Sabine Kehm.

The statement did not say where he was being transferred to.

The German, who won a record 91 Grand Prix victories and left motor racing last year after a disappointing three-year comeback, slammed his head on a rock while skiing off-piste in the French Alps resort of Meribel last December 29.

“For the future we ask for understanding that his further rehabilitation will take place away from the public eye, the brief statement said of Schumacher, who turned 45 earlier this year.
