Liam Neeson has given an intimate interview to the journalist Anderson Cooper for CBS 60 Minutes about the death of his wife Natasha Richardson.
On 16 March 2009, Richardson sustained a head injury when she fell while taking a beginner skiing lesson on the Nansen slope at the Mont Tremblant Resort in Quebec.
The injury was followed by a lucid interval, when Richardson seemed to be fine and was able to talk and act normally. Paramedics and an ambulance which initially responded to the accident were told they were not needed and left. Refusing medical attention twice, she returned to her hotel room and about three hours later was taken to a local hospital in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts after complaining of a headache. She was transferred from there by ambulance to Hôpital du Sacré-Cœur, Montreal, in critical condition and was admitted about seven hours after the fall. The following day she was flown at the request from her husband to Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, where she died on 18 March at the age of 45 years old.
Her story is similar in a way to the one of Michael Schumacher also 45 years old.
Personnaly, I was shocked by Natasha Richardson accident as the same day on Monday March 16, 2009, and the whole week before, I used many times this Nansen hill…
