R.I.P. Natasha Richardson

Natasha Richardson has died. She is the wife of Liam Neeson and her untimely death is such a shame, breaking the hearts of her husband of 14 years and two young sons.

Actress Natasha Richardson has died, a family spokesperson announced Wednesday evening. The 45-year-old mother of two and wife of actor Liam Neeson, succumbed to a head injury sustained during a skiing accident at Mont Tremblant.

"Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha," a statement issued by the family Wednesday evening said. "They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."

The New York City medical examiner's office reported on Thursday that Richardson died of blunt impact to the head and that her death was ruled an accident.

Her fatal head injury was incurred as a result of falling on the bunny slope; that is so sad.
The bunny slope ... nothing sounds safer than the bunny slope.
It should be illegal to die on a bunny slope.

Remember Sonny Bono's skiing death? In 1998 he died from head injuries suffered on an intermediate slope after hitting a tree.
