Former Formula One race driver Michael Schumacher remained in critical condition on Sunday, January 5, a week after a skiing accident in the French Alps. A German skier has since come forward saying he inadvertently caught the moment Schumacher fell on his smartphone camera. Investigators are focusing on the retired racer’s speed when he fell and slammed his head on a rock on a small off-piste section of the Meribel ski resort, prompting his evacuation by helicopter to the Alpine city of Grenoble. They are hoping that a helmet-mounted camera Schumacher was wearing will provide some clues, as will footage by a 35-year-old German steward who says he was filming his girlfriend on the slopes. In the background, a skier is seen descending an unmarked run between two groomed pistes before falling, news magazine Der Spiegel reported. Schumacher’s condition is “critical but stable” according to the latest medical reports.
