    • Michael Schumacher develops pneumonia during induced coma as doctors struggle to wake him

      Unfortunately BenzBoost has the duty of reporting a rather sad update on Michael Schumacher's health. The former world champion has developed pneumonia during his medically induced coma. Doctors began the process of waking him as they feared he had been under too long but he has not responded to stimuli other than with muscle reflexes and some doctors fear he may not regain consciousness although nobody knows what will happen for sure.


      The inflammation in his lungs complicates matters significantly. The infection will be treated with antibiotics but now getting oxygen into his system becomes a bit more difficult as his lungs work at a decreased capacity.

      His wife remains by his side daily speaking to him and hoping he wakes up. BenzBoost and fans around the world hope he fights through this and is able to wake up to be greeted by his wife by his side.

      The world is pulling for you champ.

        Please I hope he doesn't leave us. I'm not sure I could handle that. We've lost too many. The man is literally super-human, and a decent man.

        Was hoping the newest update would be more positive. Here's hoping he still pulls through.
