Screen and stage have lost a remarkable actor (actress). A sudden twist of fate has resulted in the sudden goodbye of actress Natasha Richardson. She was the wife of Liam Neeson, daughter of Vanessa Redgrave. Most of you may know her as the mother to the twin girls in Parents Trap in which Lindsay Lohan played the double role as the twins.
Richardson died on Wednesday in a New York hospital after a ski accident on Monday in Mont Tremblant, a ski resort in Quebec, Canada. She was 45.
Richardson suffered a head injury while taking a beginner's ski course. It was reported that the first ambulance sent to the ski resort where Richardson suffered the fall was turned away. It was also reported that 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. She was eventually moved to a Montreal hospital before being transferred to New York. It was a two-and-a-half-hour trip. According to a doctor, lack of medical helicopter cost the actress.
