OCEAN CITY, Md.- A local man was flown to shock trauma over the weekend after a boating accident injured his neck in Ocean City. 

The Maryland Natural Resources Police said a boat was anchored near the inlet when the man slipped off. 

Officials identified 30-year-old Richard "Ricky" Tesar, of Berlin, as the man who was flown to University of Maryland's Shock Trauma. 

WBOC spoke to Ricky Tesar's father, Frank, who said he was in surgery earlier this evening. 

Frank Tesar said his son had no feeling in his lower extremities due to a smashed vertebrae.  He also told WBOC that doctors are attempting to fix Ricky's vertebrae with a titanium replacement piece in this surgery. 

No one else was injured on that boat in Ocean City.
