This is heartbreaking — Shad Gaspard was hanging at the beach with his son and shared how blessed he felt about life … just days before the former WWE star went missing during a swim with his kid.
Gaspard posted a few photos of his 10-year-old boy — along with a clip of them walking together by the ocean — on May 6, and wrote … “Love the life I built for my self and my family.”
It’s pretty clear … Shad and his son enjoy spending some quality time together at the beach.
Sadly, as TMZ Sports first reported … Gaspard went missing Sunday afternoon after he and his boy were among a group of swimmers who got caught in a strong rip current at Venice Beach in L.A.
Lifeguards were able to rescue the boy after Shad directed them to his son first, but the 39-year-old ex-pro wrestler reportedly submerged after a wave crashed on him … and hasn’t been seen since.
Officials are still scouring the area looking for Gaspard, and shared a photo of him taken earlier in the day in hopes he will be found.
