Danny Margagliano Community Support

On Saturday April 14, 2012 South Walton Firefighter/Paramedic, Danny Margagliano was involved in a freak diving accident in deep water which paralyzed him. Although, we don't yet know if his paralysis is permanent, this injury has been devastating to Danny, his family, and friends, and his recovery will be extensive. Danny has been affected greatly by this tragic accident and is struggling, with the help of friends and family, to deal with this immense challenge. Before this accident, Danny was an active Firefighter, Husband and Father, who loved and enjoyed life, on and off duty. He was also a Realtor for Keller Williams Realty Emerald Coast, an avid surfer, and fisherman.
