head injury

Liam Neeson's nephew, Ronan Sexton, has tragically passed away five years on from the accident which saw him fall 20 feet from a phone box.

The Taken actor has suffered yet another family loss following the heartbreaking death of his wife Natasha Richardson ten years ago.

His nephew was just 31-years-old when he sustained serious head injuries while on a night out in Brighton five years ago.

Sexton passed away last weekend in Cushendall in Northern Ireland, the The Belfast Telegraph reports. His family were all present during his poignant time of death.

Back in 2014, he fell from a telephone booth and hit his head, after enjoying a night out with his friends.

Ronan was the youngest of six children to Liam's sister Bernadette Sexton, who he remains close with.

This marks the second heartbreak to hit Liam's family, following his wife Natasha's fatal fall in March 2009.

The 45-year-old The Parent Trap actress passed away after suffering a freak head injury while skiing in Canada.

Natasha fell during a ski lesson on the beginners' slope at the Mont Tremblant resort.

We offer our deepest condolences to Liam and his extended family, who are mourning a great loss.


Nicole Scherzinger was left momentarily unconscious when she was dropped on her head whilst practicing an extreme skating routine on the new show I Can Do That!

Joe Jonas, one of the stars, explains how the new show works. “Here are six celebrities who are in a contest together. And each week we are in pairs of two and we are presented with a new challenge, typically a variety act or a performance and we need to learn it in a week.”

According to the Jonas brother, “then the audience judge at the end of the show its bragging rights.”

It was during the rehearsal for one of these episodes that Nicole took a terrible tumble.

She was attempting to do a move called ‘the headbanger’ that involved a professional skater lifting her up and swinging her around at an incredibly fast pace. Unfortunately, the skater lost his grip and Nicole landed hard on her head.

The 36-year-old former Pussycat Doll was rendered briefly unconscious, while Joe Jonas runs over to her and can be heard saying “when she landed she hit her head.”

Before attempting the stunt, the 24-year-old explained how he had conversations with Nicole making sure that she wanted to attempt the daredevil move. He admitted that “this has just become a very scary act.”

Luckily, the former girlfriend of Lewis Hamilton did not suffer any serious injuries, and sure enough, she gave the stunt another go, performing it for the live show and… she totally nailed it!

Nicole even received a well-deserved standing ovation after delivering the head-spinning performance.

We seriously have to admire he courage of getting back up there after such a scary experience. 




Shia LaBeouf was filming a scene for his upcoming film American Honey when a stunt went wrong and he was rushed to hospital.

The Transformers actor was filming a scene that saw him putting his head through a window. But unfortunately the stunt did not go according to plan.

The 29-year-old immediately sought medical attention and it has been reported that he needed a total of 20 stitches and 13 staples in his head and his hand.

But the Lawless star showed that he’s a trooper, and was back on set the very next day.

Speaking to TMZ a rep confirmed that, “As protocol, production sought out medical attention and Shia received stitches on his hand and for a laceration on his head… He is due back on set Thursday.”

While it’s great news that Mr LaBeouf is returning to set so quickly, we can’t imagine he’s going to want to try putting his head through that window again in a hurry!
