Richardson Emergency Call Tape Released

Newly-released audio from an emergency call made by a paramedic from the slopes of Canada's Mont Tremblant on 16 March (09) has confirmed tragic actress NATASHA RICHARDSON cancelled an on-site exam which could have saved her life.
The actress fell and banged her head during a skiing lesson at the resort, and then ignored advice to seek medical advice. She died two days later (18Mar09) from her injuries.
And, in 911 call tapes obtained by Canada's Globe and Mail newspaper, it appears the actress initially cancelled a medical check-up and then seemed "disoriented... with signs of confusion," when a medic returned to answer an emergency call connected to Richardson.
In a radio call to hospital staff from an on-site ambulance, the medic called in a "17-Delta-1," which indicated the situation was dangerous.
And in another call, made from the ambulance as it raced the actress to the Centre Hospitalier Laurentien in Sainte-Agathe, the unidentified medic revealed Richardson "is verbal," but kept drifting off.
According to reports, the actress didn't seem to know where she was or what had happened to her.
Richardson was laid to rest on 22 March (09).
