This is such a sad story and how awful for natasha's family especially her children. I don't know what to believe, but will hope for the best outcome.

why can't the media cover this story in a more subdued way? i can't imagine how much more traumatic it must be at this time to have annoying camera men bombarding them...

My heart is breaking for her children, to lose your loving mother at such a young age..is most certainly devestating for her boys,especially since they are in their teen years when a mother's love is most needed. It is unthinkable to me and I hope that her family can eventually heal and find joy in their lives again. i will pray for you all.

Oh dear. Still hoping for the best and a full recovery. I've been saying prayers today for the family, and I hope she pulls through.

I think, that if, GOD FORBID she doesn't make it, God would be one of the first to hurt.

God bless Natasha, her husband and sons, and the entire family.

TMZ, VERY bad reporting. This is NOT Lauren Bacall, it is Vanessa Redgrave, Richardson's mother.

I find it hard to believe that Lauren Becall would be going to the hospital at 5:44 EST if the life support was pulled on Natasha at 12 something EST. Why would she be going into the hospital? IF it is true that the injuries were severe enough to be on life support AND the plug was being pulled, the family would have left by now and the body would be on it's way for an autopsy to determine cause of death, especially to check and see if anything might have happened beside the fall. Anyone else find this odd...that somene is going into the hospital to supposedly visit NR when the plug was reported by one person, Liz Smith, to have been pulled around noon today?
