Since the dreaded skiing accident last December, Formula One ace Michael Schumacher has been recovering from the severe life changing catastrophe all through this year. After escaping death by the tiniest margin, Schumacher is finally recovering and his 15-year-old son Mick sheds light on what may have caused the accident. He told Formula One commentator Jean-Louis Moncet that his father’s gruesome brain injuries could have been due to the helmet-mounted GoPro camera.

The commentator on a French radio show said that he has been in touch with Schumacher’s son Mick to get updates on the sportsman’s health, UK daily Metro reports. “The problem for Michael was not the hit, but the mounting of the Go-Pro camera that he had on his helmet that injured his brain,” Moncet said on the show.

The Telegraph had also reported earlier that the GoPro may have been a hindrance. Experts from ENSA, the world-renowned ski and climbing academy, conducted tests on whether the camera weakened the helmet on impact. “The helmet completely broke. It was in at least two parts. ENSA analysed the piece of the helmet to check the material, and all was OK,” a source close to the investigation told the paper.

Schumacher spent six months in a medically-induced coma after the tragic incident. He has been taken home from a rehabilitation clinic in Switzerland and is now being looked after by a team of experts in a specially designed facility at his home. Mick further told Moncet that his father “was waking up very slowly” and recovery was at snail’s pace.
