RIP Natasha Richardson

Sad, yet another person dying on the newbie slopes while learning.

I fall harder on greens than on double blacks. I know how to fall, I know to keep my head tucked no matter how sore my neck will be later. Beginners dont know these kind of things, I feel like its safe to say that she didnt hit her head on soft pack. However I feel like taking her off of life support only a few days after the incident which she walked away from was a mistake. I dont know the circumstances, but it seems a little odd. it is extremely sad nonetheless.

There was a snowboarder in WI who died last weekend after failing to complete a backflip, had uncontrollable swelling of the brain and passed away, very tragic, kid was only 21

They say she is clinically brain dead, a machine can pump your heart forever, but whats the point?

A girl died at Keystone from falling on her ass on a green. Severed an artery from the impact the hemorrhaging did her in shortly there after. A freak accident that even a helmet wouldn't have helped. Sometimes you just get the (not so) lucky strike and that's it.

RIP.

As far as the local news said she has a good chance of recovery as of an hour ago.

I have when the media reports the first thing they say...
