Being that she was declared brain dead, I wonder if they opted to donate her organs. As sad as this situation is, I hope there comes some sort of benefit. I know that if it were me or my family, I would opt to donate what I could.

One of the few who led a good life and was never in the news for drugs etc. Rest in peace and bless her husband & boys.

Exactly what I was thinking. The only positive thing to come out of it. :(

What is so sad to me is after she fell she thought she was OK and the ambulance that was called was turned away. What she didn't know was that she had jarred her brain (think shaken baby syndrome) hard enough to cause a small bleed and it caused a stroke and she went brain dead as a result.

If she had gone with the paramedics at first there was a chance it could have been detected in a x-ray and anti clotting drugs could have been administered.

The very same thing happened to my sister's best friends Dad. He was in a minor car accident and hit his head, didn't even break the skin and he thought he was OK and refused to go to the hospital and 2 hours later he collapsed and he had a bleed on his brain but he didn't die but he had enough brain damage that it severely mentally handicapped him. He was 70 years old and he acted like he was 2 years old. Mercifully he died from another stroke a few years later.

I feel sorry for her sons. I believe they are like 12 and 13 yrs old. Too young to lose your Mom.

It should remind us all (it does me) how super fragile life really is.

I just read that her family did opt to have her organs donated. At least some good came of this tragedy.

i know she's famous and all. and anyone dying is a tragedy. but what about the story a few weeks ago about the quebec couple lost in B.C. and no one would rescue them after multiple SOS attempts were made and seen. the wife died and the man was seriously injured after exposure for almost two weeks.

now that's tragic.

That is tragic. I don't think I heard about that.

I'm sure I am reading this wrong, but it seems you think the horrible incident is more tragic because they are NOT famous??

I don't think she means it's more tragic. Just that everybody has heard about the incident with Natasha Richardson, but, not much noise was made about the other incident.

Sadly, others have died from accidents like this, but it doesn't get the same attention when it happens to someone who isn't famous. In fact, I don't think we've heard much about skiing helmets since Sonny Bono died 13 years ago. Now, it's all over the discussion boards again.

Personally I would never wear a helmet for skiing unless I was racing--which I never did. But then, it took me a while to get used to wearing a helmet while bike riding. We must all think of safety first.

But yeah, death from tragic circumstances is very sad. Think about the three families lost in the plane crash in Montana this weekend.
