Body matching NBC executive’s son found in crash wreckage
MONTROSE, Colo. — Authorities said Monday, a day after a jet carrying the Ebersols crashed during a snowstorm while taking off from the airport outside this small town 185 miles southwest of Denver, they had removed a body from the wreckage matching that of 14-year-old Edward “Teddy” Ebersol, a freshman at a Connecticut boarding school.
Two crewmen also died and another was injured along with the two Ebersols. NBC said in a statement Monday that Dick and Charlie Ebersol are in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.
Authorities had no immediate word on the cause of the crash.
Coroner Mark Young said the body thought to be that of the youngest Ebersol was found underneath the wreckage. Heavy equipment was used to recover the body.
“I’m not going to discuss the condition of the body out of respect for the family,” he said during a news conference.
Sunny Garcia continues to post high scores
SUNSET BEACH – Sunny Garcia, inspired by his victory last week, posted one of the highest heat scores of the third round at the O’Neill World Cup of Surfing at Sunset Beach, Monday.
After a short take-off ride, Garcia posted back-to-back scores of 7.17 and 6.5 points out of 10 for a 13.67 point total that wrapped up the heat against Danilo Costa (Brazil), Brian Toth (Puerto Rico), and Jarrad Howse (Australia).
A five-time Vans Triple Crown of Surfing champion, Garcia won the event in 2000, and in 1994.
“Sunset is a big high performance wave. For me it’s fun. Some of these other guys aren’t used to it. They’re not used to getting dragged or held under water.For me, I watched guys like Michael Ho, Ken Bradshaw, Dane Kealoha and Bobby Owens rule Sunset until their early 30s, late 30s, early 40s and still be able to win. I’m in my mid-30s so I guess I’ve still got some time on my hands,” he said.
Surfers in the last heats of the round enjoyed some of the most consistent, barreling surf of the day. In the third-last and second-last heats, Australian pair Daniel Ross and Adam Robertson posted the two back-to-back highest scores of the day. First was Ross, from Maclean, NSW, with an unbelievable two-wave total of 17.1 (8.93 and 8.17), and then came Robertson (Portland, Victoria) posting a 16.33 point total (8.33 and 8.0).
Other heat winners today included Marcus Hickman (Hawaii), David Weare (South Africa), Pablo Gutierrez (Spain), Mikael Picon (France), Fabio Gouveia (Brazil), and Masatoshi Ohno (Japan).
