Edward M.
  Kennedy: ChappaquiddickMy fellow citizens: I have requested this opportunity to talk to the people of Massachusetts about the tragedy which happened last Friday evening.
  This morning I entered a plea of guilty to the charge of leaving the scene of an accident.
  Prior to my appearance in court it would have been improper for me to comment on these matters.
  But tonight I am free to tell you what happened and to say what it means to me.
  On the weekend of July 18, I was on Marthas Vineyard Island participating with my nephew, Joe Kennedy -- as for thirty years my family has participated -- in the annual Edgartown Sailing Regatta.
  Only reasons of health prevented my wife from accompanying me.
  On Chappaquiddick Island, off Marthas Vineyard, I attended, on Friday evening, July 18, a cook-out, I had encouraged and helped sponsor for devoted group of Kennedy campaign secretaries.
  When I left the party, around 11:15 P.M., I was accompanied by one of these girls, Miss Mary Jo Kopechne.
  Mary J was one of the most devoted members of the staff of Senator Robert Kennedy.
  She worked for him for four years and was broken up over his death.
  For this reason, and because she was such a gentle, kind, and idealistic person, all of us tried to help her feel that she still had a home with the Kennedy family.
  Mary Jo KopechneThere is not truth, not truth whatever, to the widely circulated suspicions of immoral conduct that have been leveled at my behavior and hers regarding that evening.
  There has never been a private relationship between us of any kind.
  I know of nothing in Mary Jos conduct on that or nay other occasion -- the same is true of the other girls at that party -- that would lend any substance to such ugly speculation about their character.
  Nor was I driving under the influence of liquor.
  Little over one mile away, the car that I was driving on the unlit road went of a narrow bridge which had no guard rails and was built on a left angle to the road.
  The car overturned in a deep pond and immediately filled with water.
  I remember thinking as the cold water rushed in around my head that I was for certain drowning.
  Then water entered my lungs and I actual felt the sensation of drowning.
  But somehow I struggled to the surface alive.
  I made immediate and repeated efforts to save Mary Jo be diving into strong and murky current, but succeeded only in increasing my state of utter exhaustion and alarm.
