Former WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard Goes Missing During Swim, Lifeguards Searching
Shad Gaspard spent several years in WWE as a member of the Cryme Tyme tag team with JTG, but he has fans worried today over his safety as he is currently missing.
TMZ reported on Monday that he had gone missing while swimming with his son. Here is what the report says:
“Officials are desperately searching for ex-WWE superstar Shad Gaspard — after he went missing during a swim at Venice Beach on Sunday with his 10-year-old son.
Gaspard and his son were among a group of swimmers caught in a strong rip current around 4 pm — with lifeguards racing into the water to pull everyone out.
Gaspard’s son was rescued — but the 39-year-old pro wrestler has not been located.”
Gaspard was seen directing rescuers to help his son first, which was the last time that he was seen:
“One official working with the L.A. Fire Dept. told media they believe the 39-year-old “did submerge.”
Divers were sent to scour the area. Helicopters were searching from above.
One witness at the scene tells us … when lifeguards raced to into the ocean, Gaspard directed rescuers to help his son first, which they did.
During the rescue, we’re told another big wave crashed down on Gaspard — and that’s the last time he was seen.”
