On September 7, RMC Story will broadcast its documentary “Michael Schumacher: In Search of Truth”. When questioned, the Swiss neurosurgeon Erich Riederer testifies about his terrible accident and his too late treatment. As a reminder, the Formula 1 champion was the victim of a skiing accident on December 29, 2013 around 11 a.m., while he was in Méribel. His head hit a rock and his helmet shattered into several pieces. He was helicoptered and then evacuated to the Grenoble university hospital, where he was operated on in the afternoon.
For Erich Riederer, the operation took place too late: “We had to act right away. In my opinion, we waited too long before operating. When you let too much time pass, you will destroy brain substances. “. Worse still, the cause of this late support would be linked to his fame. According to Dr. Riederer, the medical team would have thought twice before sending the champion to the operating room: “Schumacher is still a fairly famous character.” The intervention would not have taken place until two hours after the accident. This probably played into the final aftermath of the Red Baron.
Philippe Streiff: “Schumacher is in a deplorable state”
After his accident and his head trauma, Michael Schumacher remained in a coma for more than 6 months. Now 52 years old, he continues to receive medical treatment at his residence in Gland, Switzerland. His wife Corinna refuses to reveal the state of health of her husband and father of her two children: Gina and Mick. In the documentary unveiled on RMC Story, the ex-pilot Philippe Streiff testified on the state of his friend: “Michael Schumacher must be in his bed in a deplorable state. It seems that he lost a lot of pounds” .
A few days after the broadcast on RMC Story, Netflix will in turn unveil its documentary dedicated to Michael Schumacher. According to the pilot’s son, Mick Schumacher, the documentary will be “very moving for a lot of people”.
