Schumacher's friend says F1 legend is 'out of danger'

Michael Schumacher, who has been battling for his life after a head injury sustained during a skiing accident in the French Alps, is 'no longer in danger' according to a friend.

A report in The Telegraph quotes Philippe Streiff, Schumi's friend and a former racing driver as saying: "I'm not a doctor, I'm repeating what Gerard Saillant (surgeon and friend of the Schumacher family) told me. Saillant said it is a serious condition but his life is not in danger anymore now, thankfully."

Doctors had told the media in a previous briefing that they would hold press conferences only if there was an update to Schumacher's 'critical' condition at that point of time. However, despite Streiff's assurances, there have not been any announcements from the hospital staff.

Investigators are now examining a 'Go-Pro' camera that was attached to Schumacher's life-saving ski helmet and also speaking to his son Mick who was with Schumacher at the time of the accident.

Schumacher's and Ferrari's fans held a silent vigil outside the hospital on his birthday yesterday and Schumacher’s family posted a statement on their website thanking fans for the gesture — saying the show of support had moved them to tears.
