The Natasha Effect helps save a girl’s life

Now every bump on the head is a valid cause for concern as Richardson’s death becomes a cautionary tale


The repercussions of Natasha Richardson’s death from a minor fall on a ski hill at Mt. Tremblant, Que., are still being felt. Aside from the donation of her organs, Richardson’s tragedy may have saved a life by example. A seven-year-old Ohio girl seemed unharmed after being hit in the head by a baseball, but her parents—unnerved by the actress’s death—took her to hospital, where she underwent live-saving brain surgery. Meanwhile Richardson remains No. 1 on the Internet Movie Data Base Pro “Starmeter”—which measures online interest in celebrities.
