The body of former WWE wrestler, martial artist, and actor Shad Gaspard was found Wednesday morning on California’s Venice Beach, after being carried away by a riptide over the weekend while saving his 10-year-old son’s life. Gaspard was the body model and a motion-capture artist for Kratos in 2018's God of War.

That’s really sad. Rip tides are not a joke.

If you are caught in one, you want to swim parallel to the shore till you can escape.
