The early weeks of Anderson Cooper's daytime show saw him getting a spray-tan with Snooki, but things have turned far more serious after a young person involved in an upcoming episode was badly injured.

Gawker is reporting
that a teenager who was booked to appear on 'Anderson' is in a coma after sustaining a serious head injury in a skateboarding accident. A producer for the show had allegedly encouraged him "go out and film the crazy stuff that you do."

Cooper's reps have released a statement addressing the incident: "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."
