CHARLOTTE, N.C. - On Sunday, former teammates of an injured swimmer will help raise money to bring him home.
Nick Andrade moved to Brazil from Charlotte with his family. At the end of September, he dove into a lake and hit his head on a rock.
Andrade now has vertebrae damage around his spinal cord. His family wants to move back to Charlotte, but an air ambulance from Brazil costs more than $71,000 and insurance doesn't cover it.
Andrade's friends will friends will raise money with an event they're calling "swim Nick home" at the Swim-Mac training facility on Providence Road on Sunday. The event runs from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.
