NYC Medical Examiner Performing Autopsy on Natasha Richardson

Brain hemorrhage might explain the actress' sudden death, doctors say

THURSDAY, March 19 (HealthDay News) -- With results of an autopsy on Natasha Richardson expected later Thursday, many are wondering how the acclaimed actress apparently suffered devastating brain damage after a seemingly minor fall on a beginner's ski slope in Canada.

"She was awake and alive and laughing and breathing," Catherine Lacasse, the public relations supervisor for Mont Tremblant Resorts, told Bloomberg News. "She refused to see a doctor.
