Posted on Mar 19, 2009
Award-winning actress Natasha Richardson died yesterday in Manhattan's Lenox Hill Hospital from traumatic head and brain injuries she sustained in a tragic skiing accident. Although she initially appeared unhurt after falling and hitting her head, roughly one hour later she was urged to seek medical help when she began complaining that she was not feeling well. In a report covering this incident last night, NBC's chief medical correspondent discussed the diagnosis and treatment of traumatic brain injury.
