Discrepancies in Richardson's Death

Actress Natasha Richardson didn't get to a hospital until four hours after falling on a ski slope in Quebec, according to the New York Times, citing ambulance records. The new timeline adds almost three hours of gap to the previously reported sequence of events. "The first paramedics to arrive were turned away after Ms. Richardson declined treatment, ambulance records show, though they reported seeing the 45-year-old actress briefly from a distance," the Times reports. "In that instance, they said they saw her sitting on a stretcher - not laughing and walking off her fall, as a resort spokeswoman said on Tuesday." After being transported from Canada, Richardson died from a epidural hematoma in a New York City hospital on Wednesday. The new details add to questions about whether more immediate medical care would have saved her life.
