Moments after diving into a sand bar beneath the ocean water, Brad said to his mother, "Mom, I'm paralyzed." Emergency surgery in Mexico saved Brad's life and for the last four months Ranken Jordan has been giving him his life back. Within the first month he was at Ranken Jordan, Brad took his first unassisted steps. He recently returned to the water for the first time since his injury, a huge step for the Lindbergh Water Polo team captain. On May 30, 2017 Brad had his biggest accomplishment when he walked across the stage at his high school graduation.
