March 17 (HealthDay News) -- British actress Natasha Richardson is in critical condition after a skiing accident in Quebec. It's believed the 45-year-old Tony Award-winning actress suffered a head injury Monday at the Mont Tremblant ski resort north of Montreal, according to IrishCentral.com. and reported by the Associated Press.
She was taken to an emergency room at a local hospital and then transferred to Sacre-Coeur Hospital in Montreal. Her husband, actor Liam Neeson, reportedly left the set of a film in Toronto to be with Richardson, CBC News said.
Hospital officials refused to confirm whether Richardson was a patient there and said the hospital would have no comment until the actress' family releases more details, CBC News reported.
Richardson's aunt, actress Kika Markham, confirmed to BBC News that Richardson was in the hospital following a ski accident.
"We know that she has had an accident, but we really do not know any more details. We are very concerned," Markham said.
Richardson is the oldest daughter of Oscar-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave and the late director Tony Richardson.
