Former WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard of the Cryme Tyme tag team has gone missing while swimming and is presumed dead according to a story by TMZ.
The story says that Gaspard and his son were among a group of swimmers who got caught in a strong current around 4PM yesterday at Marina Del Rey Beach in California. Lifeguards managed to save his 10-year-old son but Gaspard has not been located yet and LA Fire Department said that they think that he “submerged.”
A massive search has since been commissioned with helicopters, divers, and lifeguards scouring the area where the incident happened. A witness at the scene said that when lifeguards went to save them, Gaspard told them to save his son first, which they did.
Unfortunately, a big wave then crashed on Gaspard and lifeguards were unable to locate him.
Gaspard, 39, signed a WWE developmental deal in 2005 and in 2006 he began tag teaming with JTG and the two formed Cryme Tyme. He was released from the company 10 years ago.
