After discovering that his neck was broken, he was flown to UPMC Altoona trauma center. Later on that night, after an Mri, he was flown to Hershey Medical where they could better take care of his injuries. He broke several neck vertebrae, broken midback, 2 broken ribs, broken sternum, concussion and laceration on his head.
