Natasha Richardson died in a tragic skiing accident in 2009, but her husband Liam Neeson said the luxury resort where her accident took place never even bothered to send a sympathy card.
Richardson and her family were skiing at Mont Tremblant Resort in Canada when she fell and suffered a head injury. She went into a coma and was placed on life support, where doctors found that she was brain dead.
Neeson said that afterward the resort never reached out to express their sympathy.
“The ski resort where Natasha met her death…we got hundreds — maybe a couple thousand — sympathy cards, emails and stuff from all over the world, especially America,” Neeson said. “Not one from that ski resort. I kid you not. Not one.”
Liam Neeson has been opening up about his wife’s death recently, telling Anderson Cooper about the painful decision to finally let her go.
“She was on life support,” Neeson said. “I went in to her and I told her I loved her, said, ‘Sweetie, you’re not coming back from this, you’ve banged your head … she and I had made a pact, if any of us got into a vegetative state that we’d pull the plug … that was my immediate thought … ‘OK, these tubes have to go. She’s gone.’ ”
Though he was strong enough to let her go at first, Neeson said his wife stayed in his thoughts for years.
“[Her death] was never real. It still kind of isn’t,” Neeson said.
After Neeson’s statement, the Tremblant released a statement saying that it did reach personally out to express condolences when Natasha Richardson died.
