The Northwest Florida Daily News reported that Jeff “Swede” Swedenhjelm fell 33 feet (10 metres) on Monday.
Villagers took him to a internal hospital, where he was diagnosed with serious repairs to his spinal cord. He now is paralyzed from a chest down.
Lyric Swedenhjelm, who lives in Destin, pronounced a family is perplexing to get her father to a nation with a spinal specialist. She pronounced Swedenhjelm is in a medically prompted coma and is on a ventilator.
The family has started a fundraising page on GoFundMe, that has already lifted some-more than $36,000.
