    Actress Natasha Richardson brain dead: Skiing Accident

    Actress Natasha Richardson brain dead: Skiing Accident

    Actress Natasha Richardson is brain dead - after falling in a ski accident in Canada - and is now on sad journey home to New York, friends told The Post today.

    Richardson, who was being treated at a Montreal hospital, is being transported to New York this afternoon so her mom Vanessa Redgrave, two children and other loved ones can say goodbye before she's taken off life-support, friends said.

    I saw a notice yesterday that she was hospitalized but assumed a broken leg or something...not THIS sad event.

    I know!



    Liam Neeson, husband of the Broadway and screen star, left shooting of his movie in Toronto to rush to Richardson's side in Montreal and now on the trip home.

    The British-born Richardson, 45, fell during a private lesson at Mont Tremblant resort yesterday and allegedly told resort employees she felt fine.

    But an hour later, she complained of an extreme headache and was rushed to a nearby hospital.

    Richardson was on a beginner's slope and reportedly not wearing a helmet when she fell - although headgear is not required.

    Very sad for her family.

    It happened about a 2 hour drive from my house. Amazing that such a small wipe out caused death. I wonder if she had an aneurysm?

    RIP, Natasha.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    I was shocked when I saw the news on the web. I can't believe this.

    I am glad I'm not a skier. I remember when Sonny Bono died, and I think a Kennedy died around that time too (and maybe a 3rd person)--all from skiing accidents.

    One of my friends called me on Tuesday to tell me he fell while skiing and tore 2 ligaments in his knees.

    The scary thing is she walked away and 'was fine' for an hour or so before any effects were noticeable. It reminds me of accidents in which internal bleeding has occurred, but not detected until it's too late.

    Very sad, rest in peace.

    Her accident was on the kiddy slope, as she was learning to ski. No way in hell that a fall there alone can kill you. She must have had a precondition that the fall triggered. She walked away laughing after the fall too, so that leads even more to the idea she had a precondition she did not know about.
