Liz Smith: 'Richardson Taken Off Life Support'


Journalist Liz Smith reports actress Natasha Richardson has been taken off life support at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. In a post on Smith writes, "Word is in at 1:30 PM WEDNESDAY they have taken Natasha off of life support."

An insider revealed to Smith, "Nobody goes to Lenox Hill who is really sick; if she'd had a chance to live, they'd have found another great brain hospital!"

UPDATE: The New York Post is now reporting that Richardson was removed from life support this afternoon.

The Post says mother Vanessa Redgrave, aunt Lynn Redgrave, sister Joely Richardson, ex-husband Robert Fox, husband Liam Neeson and her two children are keeping a vigil by Richardson's bedside.
