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.
