North Carolina man dies after neck broken by ’intense’ wave

In a freak accident, a North Carolina man died Friday after a wave hit him while he was playing with his kids at the beach, breaking his neck. Lee Dingle, 37, was playing on the beach with three of his kids, when an intense wave hit him, slamming his head into the sand and breaking his neck. A fundraising effort for Dingle on GoFundMe has raised more than $108,000 since it was created on Friday.

Terribly sad but.....Mr Dingle? I'm sorry, that name brings a smile to my face.

I think it’s something around 10lbs of force. All it takes. It’s actually kind of scary how fragile human beings are.

the poor family and kids. I can't even imagine the horror of trying to save your father from death. it sounds like he already died after the first initial impact and being underwater for top long. :(
