MONT TREMBLANT, QUE. — The crackling message over the 911 scanner is delivered with cold precision: The female patient in the ambulance is dazed and concussed, clinging to consciousness.

Natasha Richardson lay on a stretcher inside the speeding vehicle, her mind confused, her breathing aided by oxygen. A fall taken on a ski hill earlier was already, silently, killing her.

"I'm arriving with a female in her 40s … [she's] disoriented …" the medic radioed to hospital staff. "It's following … a ski fall that happened at noon. Soon afterward she presents signs of confusion, a concussion."
