Natasha Richardson died from bleeding in her skull caused by the fall she took on a ski slope, an autopsy found Thursday.
The medical examiner ruled her death an accident, and doctors said she might have survived had she received immediate treatment. However, nearly four hours elapsed between her lethal fall at her admission to a hospital . . .
Autopsy on Natasha Richardson under way in NYC
The New York City medical examiner's office was conducting an autopy Thursday on Natasha Richardson, the Tony Award-winning actress who died after falling on a ski slope.
The medical examiner's office said results will be available later Thursday.
The 45-year-old actress reportedly suffered a head injury after a fall during a private lesson Monday at a resort in Quebec. Richardson was seemingly fine after she fell, but about an hour later, she complained that she didn't feel well. She was hospitalized Tuesday in Montreal and later flown to a hospital in New York, where she died.
