LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – A man who was injured as a teen in a Florida swimming accident has died.

Family members say Shawn Graf passed away Tuesday.

In 2004, Graf and his baseball teammates from Manual High School went to Ft. Walton Beach to play in a tournament.

Graf was paralyzed from the neck down in a swimming accident.

Despite his paralysis, Graf went on to graduate from the University of Louisville and worked full time.

His family says in the decade since the accident, he lived a full life.
