The tragic accident that has put 18-year-old Ryan Burbank into a wheelchair could very well have happened to any youngster.

Ryan, whose father is Maplewood DPW Director Eric Burbank, slipped at his family pool this summer and injured his back, leaving him paralyzed from the chest down.

Although he is making progress, his family needs financial help to ready their home for his return and make it wheelchair accessible.

At least two fundraisers are ongoing.

One from the South Orange Elks Lodge and another for the HK Community Fund.

We spoke with Elks Lodge President Bob Fanneron, who discussed Ryan's situation and ways to help this young man.
