The search is currently underway for the 39-year-old wrestler Shad Gaspard after a former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) star went missing while sailing in Venice Beach in California on Sunday (May 17) afternoon
A native of Brooklyn, according to TMZ, swam with his 10-year-old son when they hit the reverse course. According to the witness, the rescuers were able to save their son Gaspard, but they didn’t make it to the wrestler and he was carried off into the ocean. “We had one lifeguard who needed to save a father and son,” said Kenichi Haskett of the Los Angeles County Fire Department’s Rescue Unit. – Unfortunately, the father ran into a wave as they came out of the stream. The rescuer rescued and grabbed the boy, son, and tried to grab the father. Eventually he ran into the wave, and we couldn’t find him. We went straight to our rescue boats and also called in other rescue workers to find the location of his father. As of 7 a.m. Monday, May 18, the search for Gaspard is still ongoing – with divers, rescue boats and helicopters. His son and wife, Ciliana, remain on the beach. “I saw a little boy who was inconsolable, and his mother who wrapped her hands around him,” said one Daily Mail witness. – It was all just heartbreaking, absolutely heartbreaking. As a wrestler, Gaspard was a member of Cryme Tyme, which he later left. On November 19, 2010, he was fired from WWE.
