Here is some truly unfortunate news, as a large search party has been put out for former WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard.
According to a TMZ report, the former Cryme Tyme star went swimming at Venice Bean in California with his ten-year-old son on Sunday and was reported with a group of swimmers that were caught in a riptide around 4 PM, with one Person noting that Gaspard was a true hero in the incident, as he told lifeguards to save his son first before a huge wave took the former WWE star under.
This isn’t even the first time Gaspard took a chance with his life for other people, as he also thwarted an armed robber in December 2016, After Shad was pulled under, more aides were called to the scene, including lifeguards, divers, and rescue boats, and helicopters perused the scene for three hours, whilst his son remained with Shad’s wife Siliana.
One witness at the scene spoke about the situation, saying:
“I saw the young boy who was inconsolable and his mother who had her arms wrapped around him,’ said one onlooker. ‘The whole thing was just heartbreaking, absolutely heartbreaking to see this mother and child in complete despair.”
This is truly a terrible situation for everybody involved. Of course, this situation has affected a lot of people in WWE who know Shad, including MVP, who put out a statement on Twitter at the request of Shad’s family, which says they appreciate the love, support, and concern, but won’t be making any public of official statements to the media at this time.
