Michael Schumacher’s racing career saw him suffer numerous accidents, but his career came to a crushing halt when he was paralysed in December 2013 after a freak accident while skiing in the Alps with his son.
Bernie Ecclestone, the Formula One boss, has known the 46-year-old German sports star for over two decades and thinks that the incident was very tragic. Schumacher, who had injured himself on so many occasions in numerous crashes, had to be put out of action by accident during a family ski outing. The racing star is now recuperating in his home after having spent months in the hospital. His condition is said to be stable now, but he is still under recovery.
