A tragic news report is spreading nationwide, and millions of people are now grieving. He just died abruptly — this is a devastating way to go.
Lee Dingle, a 37-year-old North Carolina man, was killed while playing with his children at a local beach when an unexpectedly violent wave knocked him down. He was quickly transported by the hospital, but he died there due to a broken neck.
It is being described by reports as a “freak accident,” and one that has left his dear family in grief. Dingle had two biological children and four adopted children — they are a testament to his compassionate legacy.
Furthermore, in what many are calling a “final act of selflessness,” Dingle’s organs have been donated to 55 people. “It’s incredible to see how many North Carolinians really make that decision to save lives of complete strangers,” said Danielle Niedfeldt.
Niedfeldt, the president of Carolina Donor Services, also commented that in North Carolina alone there are “over 3,000” waiting for organs. The number skyrockets to “over 115,000” when you included the entire country.
Please keep Dingle’s family and friends in your prayers during this extremely difficult time. He was clearly a beloved husband and father, and his choice to bee an organ donor saved many lives even in the midst of tragedy.
