The assistant principal of David City High School can currently only feel from his shoulder on up after suffering an injury while using a slip and slide.

David City High Administrator Chad Fuller was injured on Saturday near St. Paul, Neb. while visiting a family member’s residence.

According to a family Facebook post on Monday afternoon, Fuller was using a slip and slide that connected to the Lake of the Woods. He then went head first into the water, breaking his neck on impact.

His family then performed CPR on him until paramedics arrived. He was taken to St. Francis Hospital in Grand Island for surgery.

It is unknown if he’ll be able to use his limbs again. He did shrug his shoulders on Sunday, according to family.

He is currently on a ventilator and a feeding tube will be put in sometime this week.

The post says rehab is expected to take around one year to complete.

Fuller was a teacher and coached wrestling at Syracuse before coming to David City in 2014.
