Man Breaks Neck Doing Plunge for Landon: One Year Later

In 2014, Landon Shaw, of Tarkio, Missouri, was five-months-old and had stage four brain cancer. Landon’s family created a Facebook page, on March 30, 2014, asking people to “Plunge for Landon” and then post their plunge to the page. Each plunger would send the Shaw family money, to help cover Landon’s medical expenses (Landon is still fighting his cancer). Cole Nilson took the challenge and dove into a pond, head first. It was in that moment that Nilson’s charitable action turned into a battle for his life.
