On May 17, former WWE star Shad Gaspard and his family were enjoying their time at Venice beach. The wrestler was out for a swim with his 10-year-old son. Sadly, a rip current hit the beach and lifeguards had to dive in to save the swimmers. However, as per the reports, the lifeguards are unable to locate Shad Gaspard. They were able to rescue his 10-year-old son, but the former WWE star is untraceable.
As reported by TMZ, the rescue operation of the 39-year-old pro wrestler had helicopters searching for him from the above. Reportedly, as the wave hit, Shad Gaspard first signalled the divers to save his 10-year-old son, which they did. In the meantime, the second wave hit and ever since then, Shad has not been seen. One official at L.A. Fire Department mentioned to TMZ that the wrestler 'did submerge'.
A photo of Shad and a missing note has been issued by the officials asking for help from anyone who has seen him in the past few hours. Officials have asked people to call on 911 in case they have any information over Shad.
After a prolific career in wrestling, Shad ventured into acting in the year 2010 and became a part of films like Think Like a Man Too, Get Hard, The Game, and From Dusk till Dawn: The Series. He is married to model Siliana Gaspard.
Shad was also in the news as he prevented an armed robbery at a gas station in the year 2016.
