Former seven-time world Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher suffered a head injury Sunday morning while skiing in Meribel, France, according to the British Broadcasting Corporation.
The 44-year-old German was airlifted to a hospital in Moutiers after he reportedly hit his head on a rock. He was wearing a helmet and did not lose consciousness.
Christophe Gernignon-Lecomte, director of the Meribel resort, told Radio Monte Carlo that Schumacher was taken "by helicopter to a hospital in Grenoble."
"He was wearing a helmet and hit a rock. The emergency services arrived quickly at 11:15am ... He was in shock, a little shaken but conscious. It might be a head injury but it's not serious."
Schumacher owns a chalet in Meribel and is an avid skiier, according to Sky News.
The German retired from Formula 1 at the end of the 2012 season. He had won seven world championships, winning 91 races in his 19-year career.
