'Without helmet', Schumacher would not be alive: doctors

GRENOBLE, France - Michael Schumacher would not be alive if he had not worn a helmet, doctors treating him said Monday, as the Formula One legend remained in critical condition following a ski accident.

"If someone had had this type of accident without a helmet, they would definitely not be here," one of the doctors treating him at the hospital in the southeastern city of Grenoble told reporters.
