Richardson's Ambulance Ride Confirms Condition

3/18/2009 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Natasha RichardsonTMZ has obtained information about Natasha Richardson's ambulance ride in New York to Lenox Hill Hospital -- she was "unconscious," her pupils "non-reactive," her skin was "pale" and she was suffering from "major head trauma."

We're told her husband Liam Neeson held her hand the entire time and caressed her face as he sat in silence.

We're also told when the plane landed in New Jersey, medics on board told members of the ambulance team that Richardson was "brain dead."

I am really shocked and saddened by this terrible news. reported that Natasha was laughing and talking at the hospital after the accident. How could this of possibly happened?

Shame on you TMZ. What a load of horse manure. Neither Medics or EMTs have the necessary diagnostic equipment to determine if a patient is brain dead and would NEVER make such an assumption. Only a team of doctors, to include neurologists, would make such a statement and only after extensive diagnostic testing, the least of which would include an MRI and various neurological tests to check for ectrical brain wave activity.

Maybe you should check these stories out before you actually post this garbage.

You really are evil aren't you? Shame shame on you.

I feel so sorry for the family. Life is so fragile - cherish every minute of it. BTW - I tried snowboarding at 44. The first fall I had, the gear came off and I went to the lodge to have a few drinks instead of trying it again.....just sayin'.

#23 you are a Jackass. She was "useless" to you? Who gives a crap about you? You are useless to this world so go jump out a window mmkay? This is someone's mother and wife. There are little boys who no doubt have broken hearts right now, not to mention her husband who is probably completely distraught. I pray this family can be strong and hold tight to eachother in this impossible time. My thoughta are with Natasha and her family.

Working at a media outlet in the UK it really sickens me what comments you let on your site. TMZ, you are a bunch of jokers, you really are.

Number 23? Is that tasteful? Do you want to live ina world where people like that can express their views to the world?

Yes, Carara. Being Human means taking the vile along with the smiles. What's the alternative? Censorship? Denial? I think it's necessary to witness what Human's are really like. The experience strengthens us all.

With no brain activity, they will have to decide when to disconnect her tubes,if they haven't already.

She will be offically declared dead within a few days.

Doubtful that there was a pre-existing condition.
She hit her head and the brain swelled, it's fairly simple.
