Click the title to learn from LA Blog about her skiing accident...very very sad....She was in Canada with her two sons taking a Beginner's Ski lesson when she suffered a traumatic brain injury....
"Resort spokeswoman Catherine Lacasse told the Montreal Gazette that the actress was not wearing a ski helmet for her lesson.Reports say she was with her two sons with Neeson, Micheal Richard Antonio, 13, and Daniel Jack, 12, and returned to her hotel room shortly afterward.
"She was laughing and joking, and she walked to her room on her own," Lacasse said.
An hour later, Richardson fell ill with a headache. She reportedly was conscious upon leaving for the hospital. 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 ski resort in Quebec.Neeson, who was filming a movie in Toronto, was by her side as quickly as possible.
"Liam Neeson left the Toronto set immediately to fly to Montreal upon news of his wife's accident," the star's rep said in a statement.The couple left the hospital together via ambulance at about 12:30 p.m. and were taken to Elliott Trudeau Airport to board a private flight back to New York.
