Live Blog from the Anchor Desk 04/10/09

Tonight, we'll have more of our 360° investigation into the death of Natasha Richardson. A lot of you have been asking questions on our blog about the actresses' death last month following a fall on a ski slope in Mont Tremblant, Canada. Dr. Sanjay Gupta went to the ski resort and tracked her moves that fatal day. Would a medic chopper have helped save her life? Dr. Gupta will tell you what he uncovered and answer your lingering questions.

Don't miss Erica Hill's webcast on the Natasha Richardson investigation and tonight's other headlines druing the commercials. Watch our WEBCAST

    Is there a role for the Navy Seals?

    Could they not get under the life boat, attach suction cups for hand holds, slowly start towing with their underwater sleds in what ever direction they desire, and even hand drill small hole under the engine compartment to create a small leak in order to start distractions and create opportunities.

    Had they been there last night, they could have probablly rescued the Captain with buddy breathing taking him down out of harm's way while the rest to the team solved the pirate problem.

    RE: Natasha Richardson

    Doctors in other ski resorts – denver and vancouver- said that you should also consider the time of putting together the medical team plus the time flying back and forth from the medical centre. It cannot be 15 minutes as reported by Dr Gupta.

    I can't believe it, too. And it is all recored. Police did a good job getting there so fast.

    The Obama's church search could be very difficult. I'm a p.k. (preacher's kid) I've learned as long as the pastor ministers the word is what matters, and that they feel comfortable.

    Happy Easter everyone!!!

    My portugese water dog looks nothing like the one you showed to be the Obama family's choice. I believe it was the dog on the far left rather than the one you high lighted.

    The person who put cameras in their home is smart. I'd want to put one in all of my classes at school, I kinds would like to know what my teachers are really doing during lunch.

    Ted Kennedy wants to give him a dog that was returned to the kennel then I am in favor of that. Adopting a dog is adopting a dog. Why the emphasis on it coming from a pound versus a kennel especially if its a dog that needs a new home.

    It's disgusting that a church would lobby for the President to go there. What are they thinking? They shouldn't be looking at b-ball courts, but what message fits their beliefs.

    Hi Anderson, Natasha's death was so tragic, it is too bad that she was in Quebec as it is the only province that does not have medical rescue helicopter service... all the rest of Canada does. But even so, she did refuse help at first thinking she was fine.

    what did the bees do? maybe they were just acting like bees and something that wasn't supposed to be there got in their way...

    Erica – it's true that breeders "re home" the pups that don't work out with their first family (no pun intended). SO, while true it's not like a shelter, the philosophy is still the same. Now, back to the portie – the left one! the left one!

    Re: Death of Natasha Richardson
    Natasha's fall seemed to be bad enough for the instructor to notice. Therefore, Natasha wasn't qualified to say whether she was ok or not....a professional should have intervened.
    I believe ski hills should have a mandatory period of time where people who fall and hit their head remain under medical surveillance. Medical professionals must determine the length of time it would take for danger signs to appear, not the injured person.
    In saying that, it was obviously something no one expected, but we can all learn from this.

    The dog is so cute. He has purposeful looking eyes.

    A book deal for a dog!! Woww

    Does Erica know that her login was abused by you yet? Seems to me like she still did not know. 😀
