Ocean City High School Baseball Star Breaks Neck While Swimming

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.

After undergoing surgery, Fumo has apparently regained movement in his arms and can feel his legs. A GoFundMe.com page was created to help with his medical expenses.


The page has raised $47,430 of its $200,000 goal in just two days (as of Tuesday, July 25th at 11:25 a.m. E.T.).
