Natasha Richardson New York, NEW YORK (BNO NEWS) — Details remain uncertain as new reports emerge that actress Natasha Richardson may now have in fact died after she was taken off life support at 1.30 pm on Wednesday, according to journalist Liz Smith at

BNO News earlier confirmed that the actress was taken to Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City after her skiing accident in Canada last weekend. Several media outlets have stated Richardson was brain dead when she left Canada and would be brought to NYC so her family was able to say goodbye before doctors would turn off her life support.

According to Liz Smith, this happened at 1.30 pm EDT which would mean, considering she was said to be brain dead, she has now died. BNO News spoke with Richardson’s spokeswoman briefly after the new reports emerged but was unable to confirm the reports. “We are aware of the reports and we have no information at this time,” she said. “Whenever there is an update, whenever we have something we will sent it out,” she added.

Further details were not immediately available.
