Same thing happened to me about 20 years ago.
Being a hero.
Going to fast down a narrow trail.
There was a patch where the snow had melted.
Skis stopped.
Went head first into rocks.
No coma, just a lot of sutures in my head.

Must be the Italian testa dura. (Hard head)

Now I wear a helmet and make sure all the family does too.
Persistence Beats Resistance

Doctors say the 44-year-old German is fighting for his life after a post-operation scan showed widespread lesions on both sides of his brain.

Stephan Chabardes, the professor who operated on Schumacher, said the former racer arrived in hospital on Sunday in an agitated state - his arms and legs jerking uncontrollably - and was not able to answer questions

Former Formula One champion Michael Schumacher has undergone a second operation on a brain injury sustained in a skiing accident in France.

Doctors say Schumacher's condition has seen a "slight improvement" after the operation.

They say there are "some signs" that his condition is "more under control" now.

After work last night I went to a party with a lot of GP's and specialist Docs, one of whom is a senior head of the A & E at the Alfred Hospital. Unfortunately they were not so positive and went into depressing detail about the information that has been released. He will hopefully survive; but it sounded like the battle will be to return to some semblance of normality and the rehabilitation will be long.

This is even more sad than what happened to Ali.

When such greatness is cut down like this, it's the worst torture.

Liam neesons wife Natasha Richardson died from very similar injuries.

Tough times ahead, not a battle I'd want to fight

I wasnt a huge Schumacher fan when he was champion but he sure has come across as a truly great man in later years and turned me into a fan. I really hope he can come through this and continue to be a great dad for his kids.

The guy is a very generous man, has donated huge sums of money to worthy causes.  Lets hop some of his goodness returns to him in the form of a miracle -  he's going to need it.

It's not over yet, very fit athletes and those who have true grit can sometimes surprise everyone.
