As per latest development Former WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard has been missing since past weekend off the coast of Venice Beach. Shad was accompanied by his wife Siliana and son and they were successfully rescued by a group of swimmers at Venice Beach. But luck was not in the favour of Gaspard was the only one who went under rip current according to KABC-TV news affiliate,
Lifeguard Specialist Pono Barnes was quoted saying “That group was stuck in one of the rip currents and were swimming just north of the lifeguard tower. That’s why lifeguards were able to get there so soon, but unfortunately, one did, however, submerge.”
Gaspard told the lifeguard to save his live and did that before another large wave crashed down. This was also the last time the former WWE tag team champion was seen. Kenichi Haskett of the LA County Fire Department released the statement and was quoted saying “We had one of our lifeguards go out to make a double rescue of a father and a son. The father unfortunately got pushed down by a wave as they were getting pulled out of the current. The lifeguard rescued and grabbed the boy, the son, and tried to grab the father as well. He ended up getting pushed down by a wave and we couldn’t find him and we immediately started with our rescue boats, called in additional lifeguards to search that location of his dad.”
The search operation was going on until sundown on Sunday and it was commenced on Monday morning at around 7 am local time. Shad’s family stayed put on the beach as the operations continuous but there have been no updates on the matter. PRO WRESTLING WORLD REACTS TO SHAD GASPARD’S TRAGIC DISAPPEARANCE
