Default RIP Natasha Richardson

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

holy shit... just last night she was in critical condition... thats crazy, i gues accidents can happen anywhere. wonder if a helmet would have saved her life. Lesson to all is to always get checked out... i wonder what really happenend to have such a bad fall on a green?

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.

hopefully her fame can educate more people on snowboard safety (especially for the newer riders). 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...
