So, of course, I did some rough Googling.
I didn’t find anything about my Dad.
I did, however, find this article, which dates from 2013. It tells the story of a fit, active 65 year old Canadian tourist who went to Barbados on vacation with his second wife and came home a quadriplegic after being smashed by a wave. He at least was bodysurfing, which makes the injury somewhat easier to understand than what happened to my Dad. He is also off the ventilator and has some movement in his extremities. I would like to hope my Dad can make similar progress eventually, but I am not sure it is likely- this gentleman breathed on his own on the beach, and my father never did.
He was staying at the same resort my father was.
It really makes me wonder just what is going on with their coastline.
