Earlier today, comedian Tracy Morgan gave his first interview since being in an accident that killed one of his friends.
During the segment with Matt Lauer, Morgan thanked lots of people involved in his recovery: The doctor, the nurses, his family, the police, the passers-by on the side of the road who stopped to help him out, his drivers, the people piloting the helicopter that took him to the hospital, etc.
