Florida Man December 23 (12/23)

DESTIN, Florida (AP) A Florida man is now in Bali fighting for his life after falling from a rooftop while trying to catch a monkey that took away the beloved Pittsburgh Steelers hat.

The Northwest Florida Daily News reported that Jeff “Swede” Suedhelm was thrown 33 feet (10 meters) on Monday.

The villagers took him to the local hospital where he was diagnosed with severe spinal cord damage. He is currently completely paralyzed from chest to chest.

Lyric Suedhelm, who is from Destin and a member of the family, said her family is working to relocate her father to an area with an expert in spine surgery. She added that Suedhelm is suffering from a medically inducing condition and is currently on a ventilator.

The family created an online fundraising page on GoFundMe and raised over $36,000.
