The 60 Minutes correspondent and CNN anchor said “he woke up in the middle of the night and thought he had sand in his eyes” after being on the water in Portugal filming a 60 Minutes segment. The UV rays bouncing off the water sunburned Cooper’s eyes leaving him temporarily blind and in a lot of pain. Cooper said he doesn’t like wearing sunglasses, but now he will have to make it a point to always wear sunglasses, especially when he’s on the water.
