Natasha Richardson has died according to her publicist. She was 45.
This is a very sad story. Noted actress Natasha Richardson was taken off life support in a NY hospital today days after suffering a traumatic head injury from a fall on a ski slope in Canada.
They say Richardson, who was married to actor Liam Neeson, stood up after her spill and walked around under her own power. But what she and medics who tended to her didn't know was that ruptured blood vessels in her head were slowly leaking blood into her brain.
About an hour after her accident, Richardson began complaining of an intense headache. She was transported to a hospital where she was pronounced brain dead. Richardson was flown by private air ambulance service from Canada to NY so her family and friends could pay their last respects.
