Accident in October 2010

On October 24, 2010, Zimmermann was traveling with her manager and an assistant in a Robinson R44 helicopter to a performance in a discotheque, where she was to receive the Ballermann Award 2010 . During the landing near Altenbeken in the immediate vicinity of the venue, the helicopter crashed from a height of about ten meters over a street ( ), causing Zimmermann to suffer life-threatening internal injuries and numerous broken bones. She had to be operated on several times. As a result of the accident, Zimmermann's left arm remained paralyzed , which is why the singer has been wearing an arm sling since then . Since 2014 it has mostly appeared without a noose or with a splint. In May 2017, Zimmermann announced that she could move some of her arm again. According to the investigation report by the BFU , a superposition of several circumstances (load, weather, the occurrence of a vortex ring stage effect and insufficient awareness of the situation) led to the accident.


In autumn 2005 Zimmermann took part in the third season of the DSDS talent show on RTL and finished in 6th place.
