Ted Kennedy making excuses for driving drunk and causing Mary Jo Kopechne to drown in his overturned car. The water was only about 6 feet deep with no current based on police reports at the time. Police diver John Farrar's testimony suggested that she survived for as long as two hours in the submerged automobile by breathing a pocket of trapped air. Kennedy spent the nine hours after the accident attempting to cover-up his involvement, while Mary Jo Kopechne was left to die in his submerged automobile.
