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

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,├óΓé¼┬¥ said Mr. Coderre, whose company, Ambulances Radisson, serves Mont Tremblant. ├óΓé¼┼ôSo they turned around.├óΓé¼┬¥
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.
