Former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) pro Shad Gaspard‘s body was found washed up on Venice Beach on Wednesday morning after he was swept out to sea in Southern California last weekend while swimming with his young son.
Gaspard’s 10-year-old son, Aryeh, was rescued, and several other swimmers made it out of the water safely after they were caught in a rip current Sunday afternoon at Venice Beach in Los Angeles.

“When last seen by the lifeguard, a wave had crashed over Mr. Shad Gaspard and he was swept out to sea,” Los Angeles police said in a statement Monday.

Gaspard, 39, was about 50 yards (46 metres) from shore when he was last spotted, police said.

On Monday, WWE star MVP shared a statement from Gaspard’s family on Twitter and said they appreciate “all the love, support, and concern through this horrible ordeal.”

“At this time they are not ready to make any public of official statements to any media outlet and ask all to respect their wishes,” the tweet read.
Shad’s wife, Siliana Gaspard, issued a statement Tuesday thanking authorities and fans.

“We would like to express our gratitude to the first responders who rescued Aryeh and to the lifeguards, coast guard, divers, fire and police departments for their continued efforts to help find our beloved Shad,” the statement said.

“Shad is a fighter, a warrior and a magical soul. We are hoping and praying for his safe return. As a family we thank you all for your concern and well wishes. Please continue to keep sending your positivity and prayers to our beloved Shad.”
