Natasha Richardson’s Cause Of Death Determined

March 19th, 2009 // 8 Comments

A coroner report has determined that it was a “blunt impact to the head” that was the ultimate cause of Natasha Richardson‘s untimely accidental death. Richardson’s fall on the ski slope did not immediately appear severe, as the 45-year-old actress seemed to have only come into contact with snow when she stumbled.

It wasn’t until an hour later that Richardson began to complain of headaches and agreed to go to the hospital. Although it still remains unclear how exactly she sustained her blow to the head, it was internal bleeding that killed her.

Whether or not the mystery eventually unravels, there’s no question of the devastation caused to her loved ones left behind. Husband Liam Neeson and mother Vanessa Redgrave quietly made their way back to Neeson’s Manhattan home after leaving Lenox Hill Hospital.

    So tragic. Why does stuff like this happen to the few good people in Hollywood and yet Lindsay and Paris continue to live and skank things up…?

    I couldn’t have said it better myself, Anon! She had so much going for her, loving husband, beautiful kids, career. Why couldn’t this happen to someone like Paris or Kim K WHO CONTRIBUTE ABSOLUTELY TO THE BETTERMENT OF SOCIETY?

    She left a devoted husband, two beautiful boys, and a body of work that is wonderful.

    RIP, Ms. Richardson.

    You shouldn’t post pics of them leaving the hospital. Don’t exploit their grief. Those paps should be ashamed of themselves.

    I must say I would have preferred you not to run these photos; distinct lack of class in showing the absolute grief these people are feeling.

    This isn’t about the death of a tabloid star, this is the death of a woman with children, who just happens to have been an actress and who happens to have been married to an actor.

    Leave them alone.

    There was no purpose served by publishing these intrusive photographs. You misjudged this post.

    I agree, running these photos wasn’t in the best taste ASL.

    I hope this serves as a warning to people to treat a blow to the head as a serious matter. I know it made me think…always better to err on the side of caution. It is extremely sad to think that she may have been alive and well today if she had gone to the hospital initially.
