wow....I just can't believe this. I've been a huge fan of Liam's work since Schindler's List. It just seemed natural to follow her career as well. My friend texted me at work tonight to tell me the news. I was thinking about her all day long hoping I'd find positive news when I got home from work. I feel so bad for her family.

Very sad to hear about her death I think I've only seen a couple of movies with Natasha Richardson but I thought that she had a wonderfully warm, likeable presence.

I'm stunned and saddened, she was such a lovely actress and such a dignified person.
Its sobering to think that a seemingly minor head injury could result in this.

This BBC report throws a little more light on the matter: BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Actress Richardson dies aged 45

We are all so fragile.

The New York City medical examiner has made a ruling on what exactly killed Natasha Richardson.

Following an autopsy this morning, the agency determined that the Tony Award-winning actress succumbed to an "epidural hematoma due to blunt impact to the head." The death was ruled an accident, said medical examiner spokeswoman Ellen Borakove.

Resulting from head trauma, an epidural hematoma is a buildup of blood in the skull that exerts pressure on the brain and can trigger coma or, in Richardson's case, death.

I wonder if this injury/death could have been prevented if she had been wearing protective head gear, i.e. a helmet?

RIP, I just hope that Neeson and the rest of her family will be given solace, this is none of the public's business, and he needs his privacy. But talk about a comedown, his biggest year as an actor just beginning, and now this, life sure throws you some curves sometimes, but my heart goes out to all of them.

Maybe, but it's also scary how long it took to get her to a trauma center, even after it was realized she was in serious trouble.

Quote:
While Richardson's initial refusal of medical treatment cost her two hours, she also had to be driven to two hospitals. She didn't arrive at a specialized hospital in Montreal until about four hours after the second 911 call from her hotel room at the Mont Tremblant resort, according to a timeline published by Canada's The Globe and Mail newspaper.

I don't think there's been a celebrity death in a long time that's affected me like this one. I still can't believe she's gone. I've spent hours online, mainly you tube, watching interviews with her. So full of life and so full of love for her husband and kids.

It's hard to believe that such a mild accident could cause death. I remember one time I slipped on some dew covered grass. I didn't fall but sat down quite heavily. Within minutes I was passing out and my son ran to get a neighbor. I kept saying, there isn't anything wrong with me, no need to go to the emergency room..etc. then I got disoriented, and sick - but still didn't think I should go to the hospital. The paramedics said my pupils were irregular and I had a concussion. They kept me overnight.
Just from slipping on the grass I shook up my brain enough to require medical attention. Thankfully the paramedics made the call, and I listened.
This is a truly sad situation, and hard to comprehend.

That's just so strange to me that a region as big as Montreal doesn't have a medical helicopter service.

What happens to people there who get in car crashes and other accidents? Scary.
