Duh!    

How sad that it takes the death of a public figure for people to realize strapping boards onto your feet is not only dangerous, it's deadly! Common sense should tell people to wear helmets, legislation shouldn't be necessary. A very sad story and my heartfelt condolences go to the family.

My condolences for the entire Redgrave family, Liam Neeson and sons. She was truly a fabulous actress who will be greatly missed.

Please dear Vanessa, I state this subject with great respect for you and your family, including your sister, a breast cancer survivor. You can now be such a strong voice for healthcare. Please revisit some of your beliefs concerning the far-left view of universal coverage that Natasha was subjected to those critical hours in Canada, also found in your native Great Britain. As a critical care registered nurse in Texas, I have seen quality care vs. slow, delayed diagnosis which can absolutely make the difference. It may not have changed the course of history, but her care in the United States would have been immediate - surgery would have been performed to relieve pressure, and the prognosis may have been somewhat better. The United States does have the best neurosurgeons in the world, and the healthcare system should be preserved and maintained to yield the best possible outcomes for these types of closed-head injuries.

My heart goes out to the entire theatrical and acting world as well. God Bless You.

I am shocked at this horrible freak accident. How precious life & the ones we love are. If any good could possibly be found in this terrible tragedy would be to warn everyone of the potential devastation that seemingly "minor" head trama can cause. My thoughts, love & prayers go out to her family, friends and the acting community.
