Keith was enjoying a vacation with his friends in Maryland and thought he would run into the water and go for a swim. He tried to time the waves right and dive through one, but instead crashed into a sandbar right on the top of his head. Luckily, he had a friend right next to him that was able to roll him over and keep him from drowning. Unfortunately, Keith shattered his C5 vertebrae, sustaining a spinal cord injury.
