Air service wants Schumacher probe

Switzerland's Rega air rescue service has acted to trigger an investigation into Michael Schumacher's stolen medical files.

The Zurich-based service said it had filed a complaint with Zurich prosecutors in the wake of reports focusing on its role in handling the German sports star's files.

Rega said an investigation will provide "comprehensive clarity". Schumacher's management says the files have been offered for sale.

The air service has confirmed it was given the files by a French hospital when it arranged a transfer for the seven-time Formula One world champion.

He was moved to a hospital in Lausanne, Switzerland, last month to continue his recovery from a December 29 skiing accident.

Rega said it had no reason to believe any of its employees did anything wrong.
