Report: Michael Schumacher's Brain Injury Caused By GoPro

Michael Schumacher's devastating brain injuries were reportedly caused by a head camera.

The Formula 1 driver suffered the traumatic injuries during a skiing accident in the French Alps last year. He was wearing a

GoPro camera on his helmet, according to a French journalist who is speaking with the family.

Investigators believe the camera mount might have caused the helmet to shatter on impact when he fell and hit his head on a rock.

Schumacher spent six months in a medically-induced coma and his family says he's waking up slowly in the medical suite installed at his home in Switzerland.

Doctors also said that the 45-year-old has made progress but it is still unclear how much of a recovery is possible.
