The 45-year-old Schumacher suffered serious head injuries Dec. 29 when he fell and hit the right side of his head on a rock off the side of a demarcated slope in the French ski resort of Meribel. The German has been treated in Grenoble University Hospital since then.

Schumacher's doctors have started waking him from an induced coma. A statement from his spokeswoman declined to provide further details about his health, citing privacy concerns.
