Osbourn Park wrestler Nick Cooper has been moved to the ICU at Sentara Northern Virginia Medical Center with a neck injury sustained at Saturday’s Cardinal District wrestling tournament.

According to tweets by the handle “OPWRESTLERS” on Feb. 2, it is believed that Cooper sustained two broken vertebrae in his neck, but a scan revealed no permanent damage.

In a statement released through Osbourn Park wrestling coach Mike Spudic via text message Monday morning, the Cooper family said the following:

“He's stable. Undergoing continuous precautionary testing. The family would like to publicly extend gratitude to the first responders and for all of the support.”

On Tuesday morning, Spudic reported in a follow-up text message, "As of yesterday afternoon, Nick is awake, he is active and improving. His parents again would like to thank all the parties involved."
