Natasha Richardson – Horrific News

Filed under: Uncategorized — smackamack @ 2:46 pm

wenn2128427__opt1Natasha Richardon (Parent Trap), was severely injured on a ski trip in Canada this weekend.

Over the past few days there have been several confusing reports issued by such magazines and papers as Time Out and New York Times.  At THIS time, nothing official has been released.  

Originally she was said to have died, then to be brain dead, and now they are saying she is brain dead and on the verge of death.  No matter what the final out come, it is obviously very bad.

Richardson took a tumble at the bottom of the beginners’ run during a skiing lesson at a resort near Montreal, but the actress was unfortunatelynot wearing a ski helmet at the time of her injury!

The Mont Tremblant ski resort has reported that Natasha had “no external sign of injury, no cut or bleeding” and was “laughing and joking and she walked to her room on her own” after her spill.

It wasn’t until the actress later began to complain of a headache that the severity of her injury became apparent.

Richardson was rushed to the nearby Centre Hospitalier Laurentien, and she was later transfered to the intensive care unit at the Sacré Coeur Hospital in Montreal.

Natasha is 45 years old and married to actor Liam Neeson, and has two adolescent sons, as well as mother Vanessa Redgrave and sister Joely Richardson

This news saddens me greatly and I hope that her family and loved ones are handling everything ok…
