NFL | Hypothermia concern for missing players

Tue, 03 Mar 2009 02:59:55 -0800

The Associated Press reports Oakland Raiders LB Marquis Cooper, free-agent DL Corey Smith (Lions) and William Bleakley, who have been missing since their boat capsized off the Florida coast, face dwindling odds of survival after more than two days in the water, though their size and good health could help them fend off hypothermia, authorities said. Coast Guard officials wouldn't speculate on the men's chances of being rescued alive as the search continued early Tuesday, March 3. There was some hope, even though hypothermia can set in after 18 hours in 64-degree water. Water temperatures were in the mid- to upper-60s. "With all of these men being past, present football players, they do have a much larger physique than a lot of people," Petty Officer Robert Simpson said. "So their odds are going to be definitely in their favor."
