After being in a coma for several days, Schumacher’s condition continued to worsen as doctors predicted that he had suffered severe and irreversible brain damage, the BBC reported. Schumacher did not respond to his treatments, and following an intensive six-hour procedure, the doctors declared him to be brain dead as the hospital issued a statement: ”The family and the prosecutor’s office have both authorised that his organs be donated, but their removal will be subject to a medical assessment to be performed in the course of the night.”
