A shock went through the world of sports in 2013, as the seven-double Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher drove seriously wrong skiing in the French alps, when he chose to move outside of the slopes.
Now it's five years ago, and it is unknown what condition Schumacher exactly are in now.
Back in 2013 stood Stephane Bozon with responsibility for the coordination of the rescue operation, and he remembers the accident clearly.
- The first on-site only said that because the scene of the accident was by the side of a hillside, was difficult for them to transport him (Schumacher, red.) gently.
- It takes only a few minutes from the helikopterbasen in Courchevel to Meribel. I can still remember that akutlægerne in the helicopter had problems with the first help on the hill because of the accident location. It is another reason that they decided to fly to Moutiers first to stabilize him. Then he was flown to the hospital in Grenoble, " says Bozon to the German media FOCUS.
Bozon arrived first to the scene of the accident the day after to take pictures and talk with the experts
- I saw the stone, He was run into, and the stone on which his head had hit, " says Bozon.
He points out that the two stones were only covered by a little snow, just a thin layer. If it had snowed more, could He possibly have avoided the accident.
- But if it had snowed more, was Schumacher probably just slipped over the first stone, " says Bozon.
He points out in the interview that he also does not know to Schumacher's current state, but that he often thinks of the accident.
the 49-year-old Schumacher was in a coma for several months after the accident, but the latest news is supposed to be that Michael Schumacher is not bedridden anymore.
