THE TYLER SCOTT GOLDBERG FOUNDATION is committed to
(a) preventing children from suffering injuries arising from the operation of personal watercraft by serving as a vehicle for legislative change, a source of targeted education in our schools, and an advocate for personal watercraft design change,
(b) easing the suffering of those whose lives are impacted by the types of traumatic injuries typically associated with personal watercraft accidents through providing financial support for relevant medical research, enabling and expanding the scope and quality of services in trauma centers and pediatric intensive care units, and
assisting families in coping with the many difficulties encountered when their child
sustains similar injuries.
TYLER SCOTT GOLDBERG was an intelligent, responsible and courageous 14 year old who was a good student, a talented athlete, and well-rounded young man. He was passionate in his love for his family and his love for sports. Tragically, Tyler suffered massive neurologic and respiratory injuries when the personal watercraft he was operating crashed into a dock in Markham Park in Sunrise, Florida. Despite his courageous fight for life and the heroic efforts of paramedics and the health care providers at Broward General Hospital’s Trauma Center and at Jackson Memorial Hospital, Tyler died two weeks later. This Foundation was established to honor Tyler’s life and memory by protecting children and their families from suffering the types of devastating injuries, loss and pain sustained by Tyler and his family.
