This article lacks some key points. How did saving his kids from drowning result in lung and kidney damage and being placed in a ventilator? This article is more about his football stats than about the actual story. What exactly happened? Why did his kids almost drown? How was he injured?

Matt, you say in the article “The accident took place in the Atlantic Ocean off of Pensacola, Florida.”
Pensacola is on the Gulf of Mexico, not the Atlantic Ocean.
