The truth however, is that NOTHING – NO OFFICIAL STATEMENT – has been officially released in concern to her actual condition.

My thoughts and prayers go out to her and her family in that she makes a speedy recovery – how ever she may be.

Wow Jared do you even work? The biggest story of the day and this is when you post! Absolutely nothing new.

I respect waiting to get the facts however you’re really lagging. I guess you were too busy palling around with Ed Westwick.

I pray Natasha makes it out alive and hope this sends a strong message to wear protection! You should definitely be using a helmet when skiing.

thank you LEA @ 03/17/2009 at 10:58 pm

THANK YOU Lea! I have also heard/read the same- and that there may be brain swelling, but NOT BRAIN DEAD ..
I am praying that we are both correct. I choose to believe the postitive reports and pray they are correct.
I know that news sources may mean well, but there are so many conflicting reports and rumours all over the place, people are confused and upset.

I guess it is so typical for rumours to fly at horrible incidents like this. I also heard she may have flown to Boston for medical care – which is closer to Montreal.
Anyway, I am not sure whose sources/family friends are correct and who are not. I am just praying that she gets through this. GOD bless her and her family.

I never listen to Fox News on anything! My prayers are with Natasha and her family. I am definitely waiting for word to come down from her family and rep.

a total fan @ 03/17/2009 at 11:04 pm

My prayer to the family. she was injured and needs our prayers.

This is awful! and the worst is for her family and hearing all these tabloids make inaccurate news! Perez Hilton said she was dead! Others are saying she’s brain dead, and some are saying she suffered no brain damage & is doing ok! For God’s sake, I wish they would say nothing until we get a clear statement. Can you imagine the family if they read this on the news! Saying she’s dead or brain damaged & she’s not! That is not ok! I found out from the news on TV that my brother died! He died of a scuba accident. Before, my sister could call me the news blasted his name & pic on TV! I was in complete shock & so upset that these news people don’t care about the family! They didn’t even wait until have of my family knew about his death! New can be so cruel about delivering bad news !!!!!!


So sad.
Her and her family are in my prayers.

Oh man this sucks!!!!!! She is a wonderful actress. My prayers go out to her and her family!!!!!!

ughh so sad, I know exactly how she feels. Because 2 months ago my dad had a horrific accident at work and fell from a ladder… 2 days later he was also declared brain dead and we had to take him off life support. I completely understand the pain, sadness, and emptiness that her family is going to endure the next following weeks/years…. its extremely devastating to lose someone you love in a freak accident. Unfortunately, I have experienced that this year.

Have to wonder how good the hospital care was in Canada. Did they not treat the swelling? My thoughts and prayers are with Natasha and her family.

my prayers are with her family–i really hope she’s okay. but you must admit that the circumstances of all the hospital transfers point to bad news. if she were in critical condition, they wouldn’t have transferred her. if she was transferred because she needed neurosurgery, they probably would’ve moved her to columbia, which is highly ranked for the field….=(

I really hope she will make it. She’s such a beautifully talented woman it would be so tragic if she passes. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.

oh, so very sad.

hope this is not true…but, I googled it and found many articles from different sources…the same story.

I was a huge fan of hers in The Parent Trap. I was shocked when i read this this morning. Its so sad :( My prayers are with her family.

Sorry to hear that Stella. :(

ooh my god now THIS was a huge shock :|
i usually don’t do praying, but tonight i will

sorry Stella @ 03/17/2009 at 11:25 pm

I am so sorry to hear about your dad, Stella.
Condolences and prayers to you and your family.
