Racing legend in critical condition after skiing accident

FRANCE (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Doctors say they cannot predict the future for legendary Formula One auto racer Michael Schumacher.

He is in critical condition at a French hospital after a skiing accident in the Alps.

The 44-year-old hit his head on a rock, but was wearing a helmet, while skiing with his 14-year-old son Sunday.

Schumacher was airlifted to the hospital. He arrived with severe head trauma and was in a coma before going into surgery.

Schumacher retired from racing in 2012. He won seven world championships during his career.
