Natasha Richardson wasn't admitted to the hospital until nearly four hours after her skiing accident - three hours longer than initially reported, The New York Times is reporting. And that's not the only inconsistency in the timeline.
A ski resort spokesperson said Richardson was laughing and walking around after the fall. But according to the Times, paramedics who arrived shortly after the fall say they did not see Natasha laughing. On the contrary, in fact.
One reported seeing her on a stretcher. The paramedics were told to leave.
A resort spokesperson said Tuesday that Richardson was taken to the hospital an hour after her fall, but ambulance records obtained by the Times reveal it was nearly three hours after the fall that the second ambulance was called.
When the ambulance arrived at the hotel, paramedics spent more than half an hour in Richardson's room before they transported her to the hospital.
Basically, she must have been in terrible shape by the time they arrived. Richardson passed away at the age of 45 on Wednesday in New York City.
The New York medical examiner ruled the death of Natasha Richardson an accident on Thursday. Her death resulted from severe, blunt trauma to the head.
The autopsy results suggested that the fall tore an artery in Ms. Richardson’s head and led to bleeding between her skull and the outer lining of her brain.
