Paramedics Turned Away After Richardson's Fall, According To Ambulance Company

| Filed under: AnglophiliaNatasha Richardson

Reports have revealed that an ambulance was immediately called to the scene of Natasha Richardson's fatal fall in Canada on Monday, but EMT workers were turned away before they ever reached Richardson.

Assuming the actress was unharmed after her tumble, paramedics were told their services were no longer needed.

Even though Natasha was "laughing and joking" after the accident, head trauma can take a turn for the worse hours or even days after the impact.

"When you have a head trauma you can bleed," said Yves Coderre, director of the ambulance company that services Mont Tremblant. "People don't realize it can be very serious. We warn them they can die and sometimes they start to laugh. The don't take it seriously."

As for Richardson, he says his ambulance crew "never saw the patient,” said Mr. Coderre, whose company, Ambulances Radisson, serves Mont Tremblant. “So they turned around.”

In light of the tragedy at hand, there is a lesson to be learned from the accident - head trauma should always be checked out by a professional, no matter how serious you think the injury may be.

"I first met her on the set of 'Julia.' She was a little girl but already beautiful and graceful. It didn't surprise me that she became such a talented actor. I wanted to go to the Lenox Hill Hospital where I was told she had been taken to see if there was anything I could do for Vanessa [Redgrave, Natasha's mother], any comfort I could bring but today was a two-show day and as the curtain went up tonight I heard the tragic news. It is hard to even imagine what it must be like for her family. My heart is heavy."

"We spent one amazing day on a boat with my whole family and she and Liam and the boys. They were such a family."

He doted on what she said, she doted on — it was just perfect."
