Natasha Richardson injured in ski accident

I was so sad to hear this story. My family just LOVES her in the Parent Trap movie. Our prayers are with her and her family. Seems she is now in critical condition. See story below...





Natasha Richardson, who was critically injured after a fall during private skiing lessons at the famed Mont Tremblant resort, didn't appear hurt and was walking around shortly after the incident.
"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 issued Tuesday from the resort, which is about 80 miles (128 kilometers) northwest of Montreal.
The ski resort said the instructor and a ski patrol accompanied the actress 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. Richardson, who skiing on a beginners trail, was hospitalized Monday.
IrishCentral.com reported that the Tony Award-winning actress and wife of Liam Neeson suffered a head injury.

How sad. I had not heard anything about this. It's pretty much Nick Jr. for me all day long. My hubby mocks me incessantly about it too.

I just heard on the news tonight that she had died...she was so beautiful. Because Liam Neeson is one of my favorite actors, it hurts my heart for him and his family.
