He sacrificed his life at sea just so he could save his son 😭🙏

*A true and noble hero that will always be remembered*
Even tho his son is alive, he’s gotta have bad PTSD over this incident. That’s s life changer.

R.I.P Shad Gaspard. Not only you died as an amazing wrestler, you died as a hero for saving your own son's life. That's how much of a good father you are, caring about your own family members and their safety. God bless your soul Shad... 🙁

Beautiful but I don't understand why they couldn't get him after the child. At least one of them survived but that child will probably need a lot of counseling for survivors' guilt. It's just sad. Rest in peace Shad.

When you get caught in a RIP tide you dont want to spend energy but just to kind of relax and keep a float . Do not try to swim or panic you wont be able to swim out of the tide . RIP tied goes out the circles back most times and that's why they found his body on the beach . So relax stay afloat take in some air relax and just float
