Late Natasha Richardson leaves a shattered family behind herMarch 20th, 2009 - 2:08 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 20 (ANI): Late Hollywood actress Natasha Richardson, who died after a skiing accident, has left a shattered family behind her.
Her husband Liam Neeson and mother Vanessa Redgrave were left grief-stricken, when she was declared dead.
While Neeson had tearful eyes and a thwarted face, Vanessa fainted in shock after her death at New Yorks Lenox Hill Hospital.
Natashas 72-year-old mother was singing the song Edelweiss to the The Charge of The Light Brigade actress in her last moments.
However, Vanessa collapsed in shock as soon as the doctors turned off Natashas life support.
As the life support was switched off, the family asked to be alone with Natasha. But the moment was overwhelming for Vanessa, who fainted briefly and nurses were asked to help, the Sun quoted a source as saying.
Vanessa recovered enough to be supported by her family and Neeson, who was clearly overwhelmed, the source added.
While a thwarted Liam acknowledged the crowd outside his New York apartment, others also paid their tribute to late Natasha.
The lights at Broadway were dimmed in a bid to pay tribute to Late Natasha, who was the daughter of Oscar-winning director Tony Richardson, grand-daughter of Michael Redgrave and Rachel Kempson, niece of Corin and Lynn Redgrave and sister of Joely Richardson.
Natasha had injured herself while taking a skiing lesson on a beginners slope at the Mont Tremblant Resort in Quebec.
An autopsy report revealed that her death was caused by epidural haematoma bleeding between the skull and the brain, due to her blunt fall. (ANI)
