Jake Koehler of Youtube channel Dallmyd is well-known for living life to the fullest, often engaging in sporty behavior that begins to slide towards the extreme end of the spectrum. Has he injured himself as a result of his hobbies?
Koehler’s injuries were through no fault of his own. In a video, he reveals that he was in an accident and that it was his shoulder that was broken, along with multiple other injuries.
Koehler showed the severe injuries that he had sustained in a video titled “I Was in a Bad Accident, Rushed to the ER”. In the video, we can see Koehler in a hospital bed, understandably lamenting over the damage he had sustained and how it will affect him going forward.
How Much Damage was Done
As Koehler attempts to get some rest and recover, he speaks to the camera, becoming visibly upset as he gives his viewers a quick damage report on the accident. Even without his verification of how bad the injuries are, he is clearly in pain throughout the video.
Showcasing the kind of strength of character that he has, he does his best to maintain composure, explaining that his shoulder was broken and that all manner of tendons and muscles had been torn, along with having to get a plate fitted in his arm.
Thankfully for Koehler, he is surrounded by friends and loved ones that clearly care a great deal for him, doing their best to console the young Youtube star as he primes himself mentally to undergo surgery.
A Speedy Recovery
It hasn’t been stated by Koehler what the origin of his injuries was, just that he was involved in some kind of an accident. Both on his Youtube channel and his social media accounts, Koehler would keep relatively quiet about his injuries until his next video was released on his channel.
In the video, a Koehler that appears to be in far better health addresses his injuries, stating that his recovery has gone extremely well, evidenced by the fact that he is moving around seemingly entirely uninhibited by pain as he was in his previous video.
Scuba Diving Adventures
As one of Koehler’s main calling cards is the scuba diving adventures that he engages in, it’s lucky for the young Youtube star that he wasn’t more severely injured in a way that could have prohibited him enjoying his scuba diving.
Considering what he’s doing, it might be somewhat surprising that he hasn’t had more brushes with danger. Although, thinking about it, the Youtuber has had a few close calls with alligators in past videos.
Unless you count simulated danger, in which case his entertaining underwater session with the Navy looking for “practice” bombs will certainly qualify.
Thankfully, however, all of his encounters so far have been harmless. Even if they were plagued by problems, based on Koehler’s enthusiasm for the hobby it would take more than an injury or ornery wildlife to dissuade him from the activity.
Interestingly, this wasn’t always Koehler’s forte. He transitioned to scuba diving content over time, incorporating more content where he would venture outdoors and find himself immersed in a variety of fascinating or strange activities.
The enthusiasm and child-like wonder he has for his hobby are incredibly infectious to the viewer, easily explaining his impressive subscriber count on Youtube. As equally as he displays his sadness during the injury video, he lets his happiness and joy out for the world to see, for even the tiniest of discoveries during his scuba diving.
Before Dallmyd and Scuba Jake
Before he would rise to Youtube stardom with his diving and adventure videos, Dallmyd was a gaming-focused channel. Looking at some of his oldest videos on the site, Dallmyd was incredibly vested in this sphere of interest.
He would post hundreds of videos on the topic, ranging from gameplay videos to the occasional commentary on other goings-on in the industry. Although he would always draw a respectable amount of views on his videos, it was when he started to transition to the outdoors videos that his channel would truly take off.
The first video searching for treasure was a particularly successful video for him, marking the beginning of what would be a long series of incredibly popular videos. Hopefully, the young adventurer doesn’t sustain any more injuries so he can keep producing exciting content.
