The Coast Guard's rescue of Nick Schuyler
TAMPA, Florida (AP) -- The sole survivor of a boating accident that killed two NFL players and a former college football player has written a book about the tragedy.
Nick Schuyler recounts the details of the ill-fated February 2009 fishing trip in a book titled "Not Without Hope." It's due out Tuesday.
Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, free-agent NFL defensive lineman Corey Smith and former USF player William Bleakley succumbed to the frigid Gulf of Mexico waters after Cooper's 21-foot boat capsized. Schuyler was rescued by the U.S. Coast Guard after 46 hours.
The 25-year-old Schuyler said in an August interview with HBO that he is haunted daily by "survivor's guilt."
