Michael Schumacher’s ‘medical records stolen’

Michael Schumacher’s managers have called in authorities after medical records believed to belong to the Formula 1 star were stolen. The retired racing driver recently woke from a coma following a near-fatal skiing accident in December (13) and is currently receiving rehabilitation treatment at a facility in Switzerland after being discharged from The Grenoble University Hospital Center in France.
Schumacher’s team has now issued a statement alleging documents relating to his health battle have been illegally obtained and offered for sale.
His representative Sabine Kehm says, “For several days stolen documents and data are being offered for sale. The offeror (sic) claims them to be the medical file of Michael Schumacher. We cannot judge if these documents are authentic. However, the documents are clearly stolen. The theft has been reported. The authorities are involved.
“We expressly advise that both the purchase and the publication of such documents and data are forbidden. The contents of any medical files are totally private and confidential and must not made available to the public. We will therefore, in every single case, press for criminal charges and damages against any publication of the content or reference to the medical file.”
Schumacher sustained a serious brain injury when he fell and hit his head on a rock while skiing in the French Alps.
