Here’s how former WWE Superstar Al Snow saved a child’s life at Santa Rosa Beach

The incident occurred on Thursday at Santa Rosa Beach. Al Snow was taking his time off in the waters, but suddenly he heard a boy yelling and screaming. Snow knew that the boy was in trouble, and he didn’t wait for the lifeguard to arrive.

Snow added-“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.” 

The former WWE Superstar then added that he could stay up with the boy as a wave nearly took them under. He then handed over the boy to the lifeguard as he moved back to the shore, feeling exhausted.
