Actress Natasha Richardson, reportedly in serious condition with head trauma in a Montréal hospital after a ski accident Monday at Mont Tremblant, was walking around and feeling fine for an hour after her accident, a spokesperson from the ski resort says. "She was laughing and joking and she walked to her room on her own," Mont Tremblant spokesperson Catherine Lacasse says. The British-born Richardson, 45, was not wearing a ski helmet when she was taking a private ski lesson on the Nansen, a beginners' run at Mont Tremblant. When she was near the bottom of the run in a section know as the flats, she fell down. According to the spokeswoman, Richardson did not hit anyone or anything before coming to a stop.

"She was accompanied by an experienced ski instructor who immediately called the ski patrol," according to a statement from the resort.Lacasse tells People that there were no cuts, bleeding or other external signs of injury. Ski patrollers assisted Richardson and helped her to her room. She was not put on a stretcher.

About an hour after the fall, Richardson started complaining of headaches. She went to a nearby hospital and was later transferred to the Intensive Care Unit of Sacré Coeur Hospital. (A spokesperson for the hospital would not confirm or deny that Richardson was a patient there.)

According to AccessHollywoood.com, her husband, actor Liam Neeson, 56, was filming the movie Chloe in Toronto when he got the news and rushed to be by Richardson's side.

Richardson, who appeared in The Parent Trap, Maid in Manhattan and Nell has been married to Neeson since 1994. They have two sons, Micheal Richard Antonio, 13, and Daniel Jack, 12.http://www.imdb.com/news/ni0712379/

Natasha Richardson en état de mort cérébrale


L'actrice Natasha Richardson, qui a été soignée à Montréal à la suite d'un accident de ski survenu à Tremblant hier, est en état de mort cérébrale, rapportent Time Out New York et le New York Post, qui ont parlé à des proches de l'épouse de Liam Neeson.

«Natasha Richardson est transportée à New York afin que sa mère, Vanessa Redgrave, ses deux enfants et ses proches puissent lui faire leurs adieux avant d'être débranchée», écrit le New York Post.

À l'hôpital du Sacré-Coeur, où la femme de 45 ans avait été transportée hier soir, on a aussi confirmé que Natasha Richardson était dans un profond et irréversible coma au moment de son départ de l'hôpital en début d'après-midi.

L'actrice aurait quitté Montréal en avion, probablement vers New York, en début d'après-midi. «Elle n'est plus au Canada», a déclaré Josée-Michelle Simard, porte-parole de l'hôpital du Sacré-Coeur, citée par le site Radar.com.

C'est le Centre hospitalier laurentien, à Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, qui a d'abord accueilli Mme Richardson, la femme de l'acteur Liam Neeson. «Elle a été admise hier en fin de journée», a indiqué à La Presse Line Meilleur, responsable des communications de l'hôpital. Mais l'actrice a ensuite été transférée à Sacré-Coeur.

La directrice des communications de cet établissement, Josée-Michelle Simard, a discuté avec l'agent de la famille. «Ils vont donner des nouvelles demain», s'est-elle alors contentée de dire.

L'actrice Kika Markham, tante de Mme Richardson, a confirmé l'accident à des médias britanniques.

«Nous savons qu'elle a eu un accident, mais nous n'avons pas d'autres détails. Nous sommes très inquiets», a-t-elle déclaré, ajoutant que la famille ne voulait pas être dérangée.

Selon Lyne Lortie, directrice des relations publiques à la Station Mont-Tremblant, l'actrice suivait une leçon de ski au moment de la chute.

Après l'incident, Mme Lortie assure que Mme Richardson se portait bien, était sans blessure apparente à la tête, parlait et ne montrait aucune confusion. L'actrice est tout de même redescendue en civière, par mesure de précaution.

Les patrouilleurs lui ont ensuite recommandé de voir un médecin. La monitrice de ski, qui est restée à ses côtés, a ensuite constaté qu'elle ne se sentait pas bien et a appelé les ambulanciers.

Le mari de Richardson, l'acteur Liam Neeson, tourne actuellement à Toronto le drame Chloe, sous la direction du réalisateur canadien Atom Egoyan. Une attachée de presse du film a affirmé au réseau CTV qu'il a quitté le plateau pour accourir au chevet de sa femme.

Le couple a deux garçons. Natasha Richardson est la fille de l'actrice Vanessa Redgrave et du défunt cinéaste Tony Richardson.

Mme Richardson a été lauréate d'un Tony Award, une récompense annuelle dans le domaine du théâtre, en 1998 pour sa performance dans Cabaret.

She died cerebrally in Montreal Hospital. At first she appeared to be okey, but she went to see a doctor in a Montreal hospital. It seems she has collapsed from internal injury there. This morning she was in intensive care from which she has entered an irreversible coma. She has been declared to have died cerebrally this afternoon.

Thats the jist of it. I hope i can still speak french correctly.

I read that she was signed out of the hospital now. :)
"Reported dead - Out of the hospital".

So I guess she's fine. :D
They wouldn't sign out... Brain dead people, right? :P

Media do tend to overreact and create a buzz.
Skiing is lethal, though. I don't know why people would attempt such a thing!
Cross country skiing is the only safe skiing.

Paramedics Turned Away After Richardson's Fall, According To Ambulance Company (http://perezhilton.com/2009-03-19-paramedics-turned-away-after-natasha-richardsons-fall)
http://img.perezhilton.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/wenn2128436__opt1.jpg

Reports have revealed that an ambulance was immediately called to the scene of Natasha Richardson's fatal fall in Canada on Monday, but EMT workers were turned away (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20090318.wrichardsontremblant0318/BNStory/Front) before they ever reached Richardson.
Assuming the actress was unharmed after her tumble, paramedics were told their services were no longer needed.
Even though Natasha was "laughing and joking (http://perezhilton.com/2009-03-17-new-details-natasha-richardsons-skiing-accident)" after the accident, head trauma can take a turn for the worse hours or even days after the impact.
"When you have a head trauma you can bleed," said Yves Coderre, director of the ambulance company that services Mont Tremblant. "People don't realize it can be very serious. We warn them they can die and sometimes they start to laugh. The don't take it seriously."
As for Richardson, he says his ambulance crew "never saw the patient,” said Mr. Coderre, whose company, Ambulances Radisson, serves Mont Tremblant. “So they turned around.”
In light of the tragedy at hand, there is a lesson to be learned from the accident - head trauma should always be checked out by a professional, no matter how serious you think the injury may be.
