Grenoble, France: Doctors treating Michael Schumacher said Tuesday the Formula One legend has undergone a second operation following his life-threatening ski accident but warned he is "not out of danger."

Surgeons said there had been a "slight improvement" in his condition and that they had "gained some time" by performing a successful second operation on the seven times world champion on Monday night.

His family is at the hospital in the French Alpine city of Grenoble where the former racing driver remains in a coma after he fell and slammed his head on a rock while skiing off-piste on Sunday. (Michael Schumacher 'fighting for life', say doctors)
