(Newser) – Actress Natasha Richardson is brain dead after a ski accident yesterday in Canada, sources tell the New York Post, and is being taken from the Montreal hospital where she was on life support to New York so loved ones, including mother Vanessa Redgrave, can say their goodbyes. Richardson, 45, fell during a lesson; though she initially said she was fine, she later complained of headaches and was taken to hospital.
