Ex-WWE star Al Snow hailed as hero after saving a drowning boy


The former WWE star Al Snow was recently at Santa Rosa Beach in Destin, Florida on Thursday. But, as per the reports of TMZ Sports, he came across a mishap when he heard a child screaming for help while he was in the water.

Al Snow comes to the rescue of the boy

It was reported that Snow spotted the boy being hit by waves while a rough current was pulling him away. Snow had then jumped into the ocean and saved the boy. Snow said there was a lifeguard on the beach but he knew she wasn’t going to make it to the boy in time.

Following the rescue, the pro-wrestling veteran said: “I knew she wasn’t going to make it in time. I made it, thank God. “And, I caught him just by the arm just as a wave started to pull him even further out. If I hadn’t have grabbed him, I think he’d have probably went out to sea. That would have been it.”

Snow added that the rescue nearly turned dreadful as a wave took both of them under. This caused him to remember former WWE star Shad Gaspard, who died in May 2020 after saving his son from drowning in the Pacific Ocean.

He further said: “I was able to stay up. And hand him off to the lifeguard and I made my way back across to my friend and we went up on the beach and I felt like I was about to collapse. I was exhausted.”

Snow clarified that neither of them sustained any injuries. The boy’s mom witnessed the incident and was concerned about the kid. She, later on, thanked the former 6-time WWE Hardcore Champion. Al Snow also noted that after everyone was safe and sound, there was a lighthearted moment as a couple on the beach recognized him from his pro wrestling days.

Snow is best known for his stints in WWE, ECW and TNA/Impact Wrestling over the years. He went on to buy the OVW promotion in 2018, but sold a majority interest earlier this year. He is currently running the promotion with the minority stake. He also runs The Al Snow Wrestling Academy in Lousville, KY.
