Bruce Cooper, NBC Sportscaster, Doubts Survivor's Story of NFL-Player Son's Fatal Boating Accident
|12News sports anchor Bruce Cooper|
Cooper's son, Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, and three friends went on a fishing trip along the Florida coast in March 2009. The boat capsized, and Cooper -- as well as two others -- drowned. Nick Schuyler was the only person to survive and was found clinging to the hull of the 21-foot boat after an almost three-day search.
Of course, Schuyler's now written a book -- and Bruce Cooper, a sports anchor for 12News, is doubting Schuyler's version of events.
Attempts to reach Cooper this morning were unsuccessful, but he explained his doubts to Tampa Bay's Gannett-owned CBS affiliate. See the video below (if you have trouble viewing the video, try using the Firefox web browser).
