Natasha Richardson in Critical Condition After Skiing Accident Results in Severe Head Trauma

by at . Comments

British actress Natasha Richardson is in critical condition at a Montreal hospital after being injured in a serious skiing accident yesterday.

A member of the Redgrave acting dynasty and the wife of actor Liam Neeson, Richardson reportedly suffered head trauma during a fall.

Calls to Richardson's agent were referred to Neeson's publicist, who didn't have info because he is unable to get in touch with his client.

Initial reports said Natasha Richardson suffered severe head trauma.

Later, it was learned Richardson initially walked away from her fall on the beginner's slope only to have fallen ill with a headache about an hour later. She reportedly was conscious upon leaving for the hospital.

The 45-year-old Natasha Richardson was transferred to Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur de Montréal at about 5 p.m. after initially being taken to Centre Hospitalier Laurentien, which is close to the tony Mont Tremblant ski resort in Quebec.

As of this afternoon, Richardson is believed to have been transported from the hospital in Canada via ambulance. CTV says she boarded a private jet - we do not know where the jet has gone, but we believe it's New York City.

Richardson is sedated and suffering from brain swelling, but is not brain dead, according to TMZ. She was accompanied by a medic team for the flight.

Neeson and Richardson, who have been married since 1994, have two sons together, Micheal Richard Antonio, 13, and Daniel Jack, 12.

We wish her a fast, full recovery.
