Gaspard Ulliel dies in an accident while skiing

French actor Gaspard Ulliel died in a fall while skiing the slopes of Rosières, France. The family made it known. The French actor, known for his roles in the films Yves Saint Laurent and for playing a young Hannibal Lecter, was unconscious when the rescuers arrived on the scene.

It is not yet known what the reason for the fall is, although according to the latest news, he could have been a collision with another skier. After the accident, Ulliel was flown by helicopter to the University Hospital of Grenoble.

French premier Macron wrote on Twitter: "Gaspard Ulliel grew up with cinema and cinema grew with him. They loved each other madly. It is with a heavy heart that we will now review his most beautiful performances and meet his gaze.

We lose an actor. French." The incident brings to mind what happened to 7-time F1 World Champion Michael Schumacher. On the morning of December 29, 2013, during a ski descent in an off-piste on the snows of Méribel in Savoy (France), Michael Schumacher fell and violently hit his head against a rock, an impact aggravated by the presence of a sports video camera whose shaft support pierced the helmet and impacted the skull.

Urgently hospitalized in a semicomatous state at the university hospital of Grenoble, he underwent a neurosurgical operation for severe head trauma and cerebral hemorrhage; after that, he was kept in a medically induced coma.

On June 16, 2014, after about six months, the spokesperson and manager Sabine Kehm declared that Schumacher, after coming out of a coma, had left the hospital in Grenoble to begin a rehabilitation process in a private clinic.

Already in April, periods of awakening, recovery of consciousness and interaction with the surrounding environment had been announced. Finally, a rehabilitation process was decided at the neuroscience center of the university hospital of Lausanne, not far from his villa in Gland.

On 9 September 2014 Schumacher was discharged from the hospital to continue his rehabilitation at home in Gland. Since then, the family has kept the rider's health conditions completely confidential.
