Unless you are a Superhero, anyone who has played in the ocean has been knocked over by a wave. It’s just one of those things that happens and usually it's an embarrassing moment at the most. But last Friday a similar incident turned to tragedy for one North Carolina family.
37-year-old Lee Dingle, a father of six, was playing in the shallow waters at Oak Island in North Carolina.
"Lee was playing on the beach with three of his kids, and an intense wave hit him just right to slam his head into the sand, break his neck, and make his throat swell so much his brain was deprived of oxygen for too long to recover." According to a Go Fund Me Page that has been set up for the family.
Lee worked as an engineer in Raleigh for the past 15 years.
