New Twist in Natasha Richardson Death

3/20/2009 3:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Natasha RichardsonNatasha Richardson wasn't admitted to the hospital until nearly four hours after her ski accident -- three hours longer than initially reported, according to a new report.

And there's more. A ski resort spokesperson said Natasha was laughing and walking around after the fall. But according to the New York Times, paramedics who arrived shortly after the fall say they did not see Natasha laughing. To the contrary, they saw her sitting on a stretcher. The paramedics were told to leave.

A resort spokesperson said Tuesday Richardson was taken to the hospital an hour after her fall, but ambulance records obtained by the Times reveal it was nearly three hours after the fall that the second ambulance was called.

And when the ambulance arrived at the hotel, paramedics spent more than half an hour in Richardson's room before transporting her to the hospital. The upshot -- she must have been in really bad shape when they arrived.

The medical examiner has concluded Richardson died of blunt impact to the head.

Parents learn to entertain your own kids.    

Sounds like someone tried to cover something up to me. Either way I hope the family finds the rest and peace they need to get thru this.

There's published reports that she signed a release form and that's why the first ambulance was turned away. TMZ, don't make a controversary if there isn't one so that there can be a law suit in the future. The truth is tragic enough.

One of my favorite actresses. Such a tragedy that need not have happened. Guess this is the type of treatment we the people in the USA can expect if we allow universal healthcare.

New light seems to be shining on this strange and "fishy" story. After everything is all said and done I am sure her death was preventable had she gone to the hospital right away. Such a senseless and probably preventable lose.

People don't want to go to the hospital because they can't decide it they are really hurt and don't want to look like a fool. Go ahead and go to the hospital folks. They will see you after they give a dollar store pregnancy test to some spaced out methhead from the trailer park who has no intention of ever paying..

Story: Mom goes skiing, Mom bangs head, Mom gets brain injury and dies. A tragic story - but that's the fact. Stop the controversy.

Its called talking and walking syndrome
Even an MRI, may not have caught the blow in time,

There is nothing fishy about it.

Sonny Bono, had the same issue.

Natasha turned the ambulance away TMZ stop trying to stir the pot and let it go....its very sad but it was her choice not to receive medical help since at the time she felt fine, no one could've predicted this as tragic as it was.

Oh.... Oh....Oh! Doesn't anyone want this story taken down! You must protect this family from further grief. Yes, Harvey's a monster... he's posting more of this tragedy... Well? I can't hear you.... you do want it to come down - don't you?
Exactly.
Hit -it, gossip ghouls - you like to pick and choose what parts of the body to eat - unlike most vultures.
Hypocrites ALL.

God Bless the Neesoms - glad your not their friends.

To post#5--This has nothing to do with universal health care, I am a Canadian and I thank god everyday that I do not have to lose a loved one because I could not pay to see a doctor or because an HMO denied me insurance coverage. If she chose not to seek medical attention than that has nothing to do with our healthcare. This is just the outcome of what happens when people think they are okay but are not okay. May she rest in peace and may all others seek medical attention when they may be hurt to provent an accidental death like this. I LOVE CANADA !!!
