    Really shocking if you consider that after the fall she got up and went back to her hotel room with little assistance.

    Then she felt headaches and that is what prompted them to go to the hospital. Pretty frightening stuff.

    I was so saddened to hear about this. It's so sudden. You just never know.

    Yeah, it seemed like everything went from, "She's fine" to her being in an ICU fairly quickly.

    damn shame. The Wife mentioned this to me yesterday. I dont know who she is other than being wife to Liam Neesom, who I really dig. I've heard her name before though...is she a model or an actress?

    Very tragic. I think about my wipe outs over the years and for this to happen to somebody on a begineer slope.

    Most would know her from the remake of "The Parent Trap" with Lindsay Lohan. She played the twins' mother.



    Definitely reminds us all of how fragile life is and that it can be gone instantly and from something so mundane and simple as falling on snow while being instructed how to ski on a beginner's hill. One should not mess with potential head injuries. Remember the comedian Sam Kinison? He was fine and talking after his car accident and then died an hour later.

    So sad. I greatly admired her acting and her beauty. Too young to go so soon.

    This is really sad. However, another celeb who dies from a result of an skiing accident. Tell you what, I have never skied, with these deaths you hear about, makes me want to never try to take that sport up.

    Sadly these kinds of deaths are fairly common. Just this winter a young girl went on a ski trip with her class and died after falling and hitting her head. A few years ago there was a high school rugby player who got into an altercation during a game and in the ensuing fight with the other player got taken to the ground where he fell awkwardly, hitting his head, and he died too. If you live in the Toronto area where these happened you'll remember these stories.

    I've fallen many times walking the dog...you go over some hidden ice in the winter and down you go. I've never hit my head, luckily. When I was a kid I hit my head all the time, some serious blows too. I suppose I'm lucky...but I don't ski at all, too many stories I've heard about people injuring themselves, broken bones and head injuries etc.

    I am shocked though that it takes only a little tap to endanger your life. Life is certainly fragile...a very sad story.

    i googled her to see pictures of her and I thought she was the lady who played Camille Shutt on Chicago Hope but no, that was Roxanne Hart. Very similar looking women.

    I've always wanted to ski, but yeah, i'm with you. Sonny Bono. This woman, i dont get it. I mean, your falling into snow, she hit her head on a rock or something?

    Pretty sad story.

    Also, this would explain why I saw on MSN an article titled something like "Should skiers be forced to wear helmets?"

    Shit.

    Skiing is a bit dangerous, just as is life. Anyone who has done it knows, after about ,.... ooooh, let's say 2 seconds, that you might get hurt. And you might be unlucky with your injury. I knew a very talented jazz pianist who went down his stairs at home. Didn't get up.

    Sorry for the rant but soon we'll be forced to wear helmets just to have a wank, let alone ski or walk downstairs.

    But, on this story, still sad all the same.

    I think we should ban skiing.

    This is very sad to hear. She seemed like a very good person, and as a fan of Liam Neeson's it's tough to take in.

    What this does is make me feel how fortunate I am. I have had several concussions through the years. Most were minor, but for three of them, I was out cold briefly. Things could have turned out much worse.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the family's involved.

    And I'm kidding about banning skiing.
