My girls were watching TAKEN, a Liam Neeson starrer, when I heard the news that Liam's equally popular wife, Natasha Richardson suffered a head injury while learning how to ski somewhere in Montreal. Oh, tough luck, I thought it was just a nasty bump. A day after the incident, March 18, 2009, Natasha was dead! It seemed that she was not wearing a helmet when she fell and as she appeared uninjured, did not seek medical help until hours later when she suffered excruciating headache. She was taken to a Montreal hospital then jet-planed to a New York hospital where she passed away the following day. Doctors think the swelling of the brain was caused by a clot caused by the seemingly innocent fall.

Natasha Richardson is the daughter of the British actress Vanessa Redgrave and Tony Richardson. She is the sister of Joely Richardson. She is survived by her two sons and husband Liam Neeson. Just like that. A seemingly harmless fall proved to be fatal. I pray for peace and serenity in this time of grief for Liam and his sons.

  1. wow...i'm once again reminded of how fragile life is. there was once an accident below my flat...a driver was parking and while she was reversing, she accelerated instead of breaking. her car went barreling out of the carpark, into the badminton court right behind, taking out a couple who was just sitting on a bench chatting. the girl survived but the guy died...( i actually wrote abt it in detail in my blog post "Death")

    i will always remind my loved ones to be careful.

  2. I met her once in NYC. She was lovely. My heart goes our to her family. We are off to go skiing next week and I WILL wear a helmet for the first time--I've been skiing for decades but never thought I would injure myself. Thanks for sharing.

  3. that is so sad. she's too young to go, leaving such young kids behind. life is indeed too short!

  4. I loved her in parent trap. :)
