The US entertainment industry mourns the loss of a great actress… Tony Award-winning actressNatasha Richardson. Such a lovely and kindhearted actress who was well known for her role in The Parent Trap, where she played as the mother of “twins” played by Lindsay Lohan.
CNN reports Natasha’s death today after a severe head injury while skiing north of Montreal. She wasn’t wearing a helmet, sad to say, when she was skiing. She had a “normal” fall during a beginner’s skiing lesson, she was seen by everyone with her as “alright”. But after an hour…
An instructor and a ski patrol member accompanied her off the slopes, and when Ms. Richardson complained of a headache about an hour later in her hotel, she was taken by ambulance to a hospital nearby and later transferred to one in Montreal. She was flown to Lenox Hill on Tuesday afternoon. -quote from CNN
News of her death quickly spread across the USA, just yesterday I heard some people in congress wanting to draft a law to make wearing helmets a requirement while skiing, with heavy fines and possible imprisonment for multiple offenders.
