Doctors treating the five-time Formula One champion Michael Schumacher, have reportedly given up on their efforts to bring the F1 legend out of 'artificial coma' state. According to a report in the German magazine Focus, doctors at the University Hospital of Grenoble in France, where Schumacher's is admitted from more than a month, have run out of options after repeated trials to save the five-time champion.
However, no official reason has been given yet on Schumacher's further recovery. Though, three weeks ago, doctors reduced the dosage of anaesthetic to wake him up from coma.
Schumacher is under artificially induced coma since December 29 after seriously injuring his head during a low-speed ski accident. While skiing with his son and group of friends, Schumacher had crashed into a rock so hard that the impact cracked his helmet.
Last week, Schumacher's former Ferrari colleague Felipe Massa visited to see him in hospital. "He is sleeping, he looks normal and he showed a few responses with his mouth," the German daily Bild had quoted Massa as saying.
