Despite the failed attempt, David has agreed to pay all Rodriguez's sister's hospital bills, Rodriguez's rent for the next year and will provide him with an additional undisclosed amount of cash.  

David issued a statement today regarding Juan J. Rodriguez's attempt to capture the prize to be awarded in his attempt to complete the Battlecam.com Million Dollar Challenge:

"After reviewing the footage of Juan Rodriguez's attempt to complete the Battlecam.com Million Dollar Challenge, I spoke with Mr. Rodriguez directly.  Mr. Rodriguez agreed that he was not able to complete all the criteria of the challenge. But he came so very close, and his personal story about why he decided to take such a risk for his family, moved me to provide him with a generous consolation prize.

"It is fans of Battlecam.com like Mr. Rodriguez that make our community so different than anything online. The Battlecam.com Million Dollar Challenge is now complete and I will look for a new challenge for the Battlecam community in the near future."
