Washington (ANI): Late Hollywood actress Natasha Richardson, who was injured in a skiing incident, reportedly died of blunt impact to the head. Medical examiner spokeswoman Ellen Borakove revealed that Natasha's death was caused due 'epidural hematoma' which led to an internal bleeding between the skull and the brain's covering, reports Us magazine.
Moreover, Natasha was not even wearing a helmet when she fell during a private skiing lesson on a beginners trail at the Mont Tremblant ski resort near Montreal. Although Natasha revealed that she felt fine after the accident and had no visible injuries, she later complained of a major headache.
Though the first ambulance sent to the resort was even turned away, an ambulance was sent again when Natasha's condition deteriorated after an hour.
