Natasha Richardson is in grave condition, from a head injury sustained snow skiing. Radio reports state she is brain dead.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090317/ap_en_mo/people_natasha_richardson

MONTREAL Actress Natasha Richardson, critically injured in a skiing accident, was on a flight to the United States, Britain's Press Association news agency said Tuesday, quoting Sacre-Coeur Hospital.

The report didn't say where in the U.S. the flight was headed.

"According to the family's press agent, the lady has left Canada around 12:30 today," said Michelle Simard of the Sacre-Coeur hospital in a recorded message. "We have no information on Ms. Richardson's health condition, but the family should give more information by tomorrow."

Richardson was hospitalized after falling during a private lesson on a beginners trail at the famed Mont Tremblant ski resort Monday.

IrishCentral.com reported that the Tony Award-winning actress and wife of Liam Neeson suffered a head injury.

Richardson, 45, is the elder daughter of Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave and the late director Tony Richardson, and belongs to a British acting dynasty.

"We know that she has had an accident but we really do not know any more details," said Kika Markham, who is married to Richardson's uncle, Corin Redgrave. "We are very concerned."

Mont Tremblant said Richardson fell on a beginners trail and later reported not feeling well.

"She did not show any visible sign of injury but the ski patrol followed strict procedures and brought her back to the bottom of the slope and insisted she should see a doctor," said a statement from the resort, which is about 80 miles northwest of Montreal.

The ski resort said the instructor and a ski patrol accompanied Richardson to her hotel, where they again recommended she should be seen by a doctor.

Mont Tremblant spokeswoman Catherine Lacasse said Richardson said she was fine at first.

"An hour later she said she didn't feel well. She had a headache, so we sent her to the hospital," Lacasse said. "There were no signs of impact and no blood, nothing."

An ambulance was called and Richardson was brought to the Centre Hospitalier Laurentien in Ste-Agathe and was later transferred to Hopital du Sacre-Coeur in Montreal.

Producers confirmed that Richardson's husband, Liam Neeson, immediately left the Toronto set of his upcoming movie, "Chloe," for Montreal, a publicist for the film said in an e-mail.

Richardson's films include "Gothic," "A Month in the Country," "Nell" in which she appeared with her future husband "The Parent Trap" and "Maid in Manhattan."

Trained at London's Central School of Speech and Drama, Richardson has had extensive stage experience in the West End and Broadway. She won a Tony Award in 1998 for playing Sally Bowles in "Cabaret."

Her maternal grandparents were the actors Michael Redgrave and Rachel Kempson, and her uncle Corin and aunt Lynn Redgrave are also both actors. Sister Joely Richardson is also an actress, best known for starring in the TV series "Nip/Tuck."

In January, Richardson and her mother played the roles of mother and daughter in a one-night benefit concert version of "A Little Night Music," the Stephen Sondheim-Hugh Wheeler musical, at Studio 54 in New York.

She married Neeson in 1994, and the couple have two sons.

Really sad her walking away from the accident, and denying treatment, kind of brings to mind Berry Oakleys accident.

Briefly heard about this on morning news while getting ready for work. Terrible. Hope things work out here and she recovers.

This happened on a bunny hill. Skiing is dangerous. Yes it is exactly what happened to Berry. I don't know whether she could have been saved had she been hospitalized immediately. Word is that berry could not have been saved in any event. Unbelievable the things that happen. "You don't need no gypsy to tell you why..."

I have never in my life tried skiing. (The closest I got to doing so was hanging out on a Hunter Mountain ski slope in the middle of the summertime watching Mule!)
Anyways, I've seen those ski slopes and they look mighty scary to me. With news such like this and how other people like Sonny Bono died, I figure I might never invest in a pair of skiis anytime soon.

I have skied for 30 of my 39 years on this planet. Skiing is less dangerous than getting in your car everyday. I do not wear a helmet and I ski steep, fast slopes.

Accidents like this happen and are unfortunate.

I am investing in a helmet in the offseason because of this. I do not want that 1 time I fall hard to be it.

I've been a skier since 1987 , been wearing a helmet since 1998. I took a nice fall a couple of weeks ago and last week was on the lift with an aquaintence and he mentions how he fell in nearly an identical way that I did. When I fell I crashed the side of my helmeted head into the hardpack snow ( this is NY so think closer to ice ) and as I slid to a stop I was glad I had a helmet on , dusted myself off and continued to enjoy a few more runs. My friend Does Not wear a helmet and he said he thought he might have given himself a mild concussion ( he quit for the day after his crash ) . This is an unscientific example , but I feel it's a pretty good example of what your head feels like after crashing with a helmet or crashing helmetless. This does not mean a helmet will save your noggin in any crash. I mean if I'm skiing all out fast and lose it and crash my head into a tree at 40MPH there's not a lot that can be done. But in this day & age it makes no sense NOT to wear a helmet. You usually need to wear a hat to keep your head warm and the nice thing about ski helmets is that they all have some kind of ventalition system so you are proabbly more comfortable with a helmet as opposed to a hat. From a purely eye ball observation I would say 4 out of 5 people who ski at Hunter on a regular basis wear helmets at this time.

Doctors have a brutal term for this condition, its called "talk and die". the victim appears fine after the accident and talks and acts normal, however they are bleeding inside their skull, pressure builds up and destroys their brain. who knows if she could have been saved with emergency brain surgery?, medical science has come a long way since Berrys accident.

Very sad. I didn't go downhill skiing until I was 30 or 31 - I was with an instructor creaking my way down a bunny slope watching 5 and 6 year olds whizzing by me like Olympians, and I realized that this sport had passed me by. Never did it again, though I've been cross-country skiing several times since. Always liked her work and Liam Neeson is one of my favorites. Two young kids...damn.

I grew up in butthole deep snow but didn't learn how to snow ski until I was living in the south. I love it now, and I have had a few spills. I remember banging my head on the icy ground one time hard enough to make me see stars. But I can take a shot to the head as I am pretty thick skulled. That, or there is a fair amount of air between my skull and brain.

But I sure hate to hear about this with Ms. Richardson. They are keeping pretty tight lipped about her actual condition, which worries me that she may actually be on life support and they are just giving the family time to say their goodbyes before turning it off, and that, to me, has to be the most gut wrenching things any family can go through. Bless their hearts...

I was so sorry to hear about this tragedy.... I use to ski many years ago , had a few falls.. the last time I fell , we were skiing at night back in the 70's and it was so cold... when I fell ..all skiers were going so fast by me... that scared me so much that I never went back..the risks out weighed the pleasure... for me...

nypeachhead has it right... Life is short, hug a loved one...

Prayers to Natasha and family

Just heard that Natasha Richardson died from these injuries. What a terrible tragedy. Thoughts and prayers going out to her family and friends, especially her 2 sons who must be missing their mother terribly right now.
