A passerby spotted a dead body on the Venice beach and notified the police.
“The deceased has been identified as Shad Gaspard,” said the police. Her family members have been warned.
“The last time he was seen by the lifeguard, a wave crashed on Mr. Shad Gaspard and was blown away into the sea,” said the department.
The boy has been saved.
The United States coast guard, Los Angeles County lifeguards and the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department have all sought out the swimmer, said Trina Schrader, spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Department. The search was suspended on Tuesday afternoon.
Gaspard is known to be a member of the Cryme Tyme wrestling team with fellow WWE star JTG, which debuted in 2006.
CNN asked for comments from representatives of the Gaspard family.
