The body of former WWE star Shad Gaspard has been found on Venice Beach in Los Angeles after he went missing while swimming with his son.
The 39-year-old got caught in a rip tide with 10-year-old Aryeh on May 17.
His son was rescued but lifeguards couldn’t save Shad.
“Shad drowned in the ocean,” posted Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, “but not before instructing lifeguards to save his son first. That’s the love of a father.”
He goes on to say Shad was a “great guy” and offered his “deepest condolences and love to his wife, son and family”.
“This one hurts,” he adds.
Shad’s wife Siliana had thanked the authorities for rescuing her son as the search continued for her husband. “Shad is a fighter, a warrior and a magical soul. We are hoping and praying for his safe return.”
