Teen Slated For An Appearance On Anderson In A Coma

So incredibly sad.

A young teen boy is currently in coma after he suffered a head injury filming a segment for Anderson Cooper's new daytime talk show.

The teen was supposed to be featured on an episode looking into the "adolescent mind". Producers allegedly encouraged the boy to film some of the "crazy stuff" he does for the show. So, the boy took a camera and filmed himself doing a trick on his skateboard. The boy subsequently fell while doing so, hit his head and has been in a coma ever since. The episode was scrapped.

Both the producers and Anderson have released statements on the boy's condition, which remains unchanged. The producers say:

"Our producers were working with a teen and his parents on a show about the science of the Teenage Brain, based on a National Geographic story. 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."

Anderson added his own statement, saying:

"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."

Wow. Such a tragedy.

Here's hoping that young boy can pull through. He has a lot to live for, a lot to still see and do. We're pulling for you buddy. Stay strong!

    STUPID IS…AS STUPID DOES……

    total lame way to die………God didn't put us on this earth to be stupid and waste our time….we are here to make a difference and doing stupid stunts on a skateboard that can hurt you serves not purpose and doesn't make a difference in this world.

    I think they should study the brains of parents who produce kids that take unacceptable risks for a trick. These Mom/Dad's are so excited to see their kids land them that they forget what a slam to the pavement can do. Did not hear if he was wearing a helmet, but I suspect based on his injuries he didn't. I really hope he recovers.

    "It's only fun until someone loses an eye" is a joke but is based on reality. Don't take risks with your kids - they are all you have, and you have and should exersize the word no. Cooper jumped the shark with this show, the more I see the more I shake my head.

    haha.. perez hilton has the largest concentration of wastes of skin on the internet. 4Chan move over.

    could guess all the pathetic comments I would read before I came in here. every single one was there. shit happens, this is no ones fault. if this is what this kid likes to do, let him do it.

    God didn't put us on this earth to judge people like you do Kim K's Saggy ass.

    Ray Pearson, if you saw this episode and the kid did it without hurting himself you would think nothing of it. Because he did Anderson Cooper is a terrible person.

    So pathetic. Maybe you dip shits should actually take a second or two to think about what you're writing before you hit submit. Bunch of children, but at least it provides morning entertainment.

    GOOD JOB ANDERSON COOPER…..
    WHY WOULD YOU IN-COURAGE SOMEONE THAT OBVIOUSLY HAS SOME KIND OF PROBLEM, TO GO AND FILM THE STUPID SHIT HE DOES ?????
    OH YEAH THAT'S RIGHT, THE BIGGEST JACK ASS GET'S THE MOST VIEWS RIGHT ????
    WELL THAT JACK ASS WAS A KID SO WHEN YOUR DONE PRAYING YOU NEED TO START PAYING FOR HIS HOSPITAL BILLS AND WHAT EVER MENTAL PROBLEM HE HAS THAT DRIVES HIM TO DO THE STUPID SHIT HE DOES……
    NOT NORMALLY YOUR PROBLEM????
    WELL YOU IN-COURAGE HIS STUPIDITY THEREFORE UNTIL YOU STOP BEING GREEDY FOR RATINGS YOU SHOULD LEARN YOUR LESSON BY PAYING UP….

    Re: RAY2RAY

    Caps lock off

    *Encourage*

    Take your meds.

    Accomplish something in your own life instead of stalking the Perez forums to hate on other for illogical reasons in order to mask your own insecurities and shortcomings.

    Good day
