News Former WWE star Shad Gaspard goes missing during beach swim

A search is ongoing for former WWE star Shad Gaspard after he went missing while swimming at Venice Beach in California on Sunday afternoon.

A search is ongoing for former WWE star Shad Gaspard after he went missing while swimming at Venice Beach in California on Sunday afternoon.

Gaspard was swimming with his 10-year-old son when they were both caught under a strong ocean current. Lifeguards were able to save his son first. A witness at the scene told TMZ that before his disappearance, Gaspard directed rescuers to first help his son. The father was then submerged by a wave that crashed down on him and has not been seen since.

“We had one of our lifeguards go out to make a double rescue of a father and a son,” Kenichi Haskett, Los Angeles County Fire Department Lifeguard Division, told the Daily Mail.

“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.”

A message on Gaspard’s Instagram story read: “Missing!!! Last seen wearing swim shorts. If you have seen Shad please message me. Please don’t flood me asking what happened. We want to know if he’s been seen and where. Thank you.”

As of 7 a.m. Monday, the search for Gaspard was still ongoing — with divers, rescue boats and helicopters assisting — as his son and wife, Siliana, remained at the beach, the Daily Mail reported.

Gaspard is best known for being a member of the wrestling team Cryme Tyme with fellow WWE star JTG, which debuted in 2006. After leaving WWE in 2010, he pursued an acting career and has appeared in films “Think Like a Man Too” and “The Last Sharknado: It’s About Time”.
