It may not have been the fall that caused Michael Schumacher’s devastating head injury, but the GoPro camera mounted to his helmet.
That is according to a new report on the circumstances surrounding the seven-time Formula 1 World Champion’s accident.
Schumacher suffered traumatic head injuries after a skiing accident last year and according to French journalist, Jean-Louis Moncet, “The problem for Michael was not the hit, but the mounting of the Go-Pro [sic] camera that he had on his helmet that injured his brain.” Earlier this year, London’s The Telegraph hinted something similar in a report stating that a laboratory was doing additional testing to see if the camera had weakened the structure of the helmet.
Schumacher is currently continuing his recovery at his Switzerland home after six months of care in a French hospital.
