Saturday April 5, 2014 - Email this article to a friend

He is showing moments of consciousness according to a statement released by his family. He remains in a serious condition following his ski accident in France last December.

The statement was released by his agent, Sabine Kehm, as doctors try to bring him out of his induced coma.

We reproduce the full statement below.

"Michael is making progress on his way. He shows moments of consciousness and awakening. We are on his side during his long and difficult fight, together with the team of the hospital in Grenoble, and we keep remaining confident," said the statement.

"We would like to thank you all for the continuous sympathies. At the same time, we again ask for understanding that we do not intend to disclose details. This is necessary to protect the privacy of Michael and his family, and to enable the medical team to work in full calmness."

We also recently reported on concerns that he was treated too slowly and taken to the wrong hospital following the accident - see here for that article.
