Neeson is dealt more heartbreak

Actor Liam Neeson’s nephew is in the hospital after suffering a head injury.

According to The Daily Mail, Ronan Sexton, 31, who is the son of Neeson’s sister Bernadette, is still in critical condition after his fall from Brighton promenade in East Sussex. Bernadette Sexton has reportedly been in the hospital to be by her son’s bedside.

The news brings memories of the death of Neeson’s wife, actress Natasha Richardson, back in 2009. She sustained a fatal head injury after she fell while on a ski trip.

Neeson recently revealed in an interview with Anderson Cooper that his wife’s death was still unreal for him, the Daily Mail reported.

TMZ reported Sexton’s fall occurred on Sunday around 4 in the morning. He had been on top of a telephone box while celebrating a night out with his friends when he fell 20 feet to the ground.

People reported his family said in a statement, “Ronan is receiving wonderful treatment from the dedicated staff at Hurstwood Park. We gratefully receive all the love, support, prayers and good wishes for Ronan’s full recovery to good health. We would appreciate privacy at this time.”

Neeson has reportedly been in touch with his sister since the accident occurred.
