So when he saw a platform high in a tree with a cable over the waters of Lake Bistineau while fishing with 12-year-old son Seth, he didn’t hesitate to shimmy up to it and jump.

“My last words to my son were ‘Here goes nothing.’ When I made the swing, I couldn’t hold on to the cable. I ended up hitting the ground, bouncing off a cypress knee into the water. I knew I had done something. I couldn’t lift my head, I couldn’t move my arms or legs.”
