Schumacher ‘Responding To Instructions’ & ‘Able To Blink’

Some positive news regarding Formula 1 legend Michael Schumacher has come to light. The 45 year old German is showing signs of recovery after falling during a ski trip and hitting his head on a rock. He was placed into an artificial coma in the hope that it would enable brain recovery, and is now being gradually brought back out by reducing the level of sedation he is receiving. It is without doubt a good sign that he is being brought out of the coma, but experts explain that the next 24 hours will be critical! 

All the best Michael, we hope you get through this and make a speedy recovery sir.
