Anderson Cooper is “saddened” by teen tragedy

A teenager has fallen into a coma after one of Anderson ‘s producers encouraged him to record his reckless behavior for a show on the “teenage mind.”

While recording “the crazy stuff you do” for the Anderson show, the teen filmed himself skateboarding and fell, sustaining a severe head injury.

The show issued a statement regarding the unfortunate event: “As part of our routine process, we ask guests for video footage and photos. We did not provide the family with a camera. On the morning that they were supposed to travel to NYC, we learned that the teen had been injured. We are very concerned about him, and are thinking of him and his family at this time.”

Cooper, 44, reacted to the news as well.

“I was very saddened to hear the news of this accident and want to express my deepest concerns for the teenager who was injured. I take this situation seriously, and my thoughts and prayers for his health, well-being and recovery are with him and his family.”
