U P D A T E
In march of 2011 Vell was in a diving accident at the beach. The water was too shallow when he dove in and he hit his head on the bottom. He was temporarily paralyzed and was underwater. He could only ask God to save him. In that very moment he began to rise above the water & the waves turned him over. He then was able to call for help because he couldnt move at all. It was a miracle of God that saved Vell. He was in the hospital a few weeks and had to learn how to walk,eat & function all over again. Thankfully, he had no neck break or permenant damage to his spine. Only nerve damage that he has recovered from.
