Doctor says home return is safe for Schumacher

Michael Schumacher

A leading sports doctor says it could be true that Michael Schumacher will soon be moved from the hospital in Grenoble to his Swiss home.

Amid fading fears the F1 legend will ever emerge from his now more than three-month coma, it has been reported Schumacher’s wife Corinna is making arrangements for a multi-million dollar medical facility to be added to their house on Lake Geneva.

“A transfer can always be performed, ideally with a helicopter,” said Reinhard Weinstabl, a well-known sports doctor with a private facility in Vienna.

“It would be safe to transport Schumacher,” he explained.

“There is a question about whether he is still artificially ventilated, but although technically complicated, it is also feasible to transport even an intubated patient,” said Weinstabl.

Asked what Schumacher would need once he arrived home, he explained: “There would need to be an intensive care room with ventilation facilities.”
