PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Aspiring college baseball player Matt Fumo broke his neck while swimming, according to NJ.com.
Fumo, 19, was injured himself on Thursday near the Ocean City-Longport Bridge, the PressofAtlanticCity.com reports.
Fumo is a recent graduate of Ocean City High School and planned to attend and play baseball for Cumberland County College in Vineland.
