In the summer of 1969, Ted Kennedy was a promising U.S. Senator with presidential ambitions.

A night partying with several female staffers changed that forever.

After hours of drinking, Kennedy gave a young, impressionable staffer, Mary Jo Kopechne a lift. Driving drunk, he veered off a bridge. 

Kennedy saved himself and left the scene. He did not report the accident for 10 hours – only after meeting with campaign aides, local politicians, and his ailing father to establish an alibi.

Investigators believe Kopechne slowly suffocated to death. Trapped in an air pocket, inside the darken, submerged car.
