Hugh Jackman Rescues His Children, Other Swimmers From Strong Riptide
'The Wolverine' star turned into a real life superhero.
Actor Hugh Jackman, who is used to playing superheroes on screen, transformed into one in real life.
Jackman leapt to the rescue when his 15-year-old son, Oscar, his 10-year-old daughter, Ava, and other beachgoers got caught in a riptide at Bondi Beach in Australia on Saturday.
He was photographed bringing swimmers to safety.
The Wolverine star’s rep said in a statement: "Hugh and Oscar are completely fine. It looks more dramatic than it was."
The North Bondi Beach Patrol posted a big thank you to Jackman on Instagram.
WELL DONE to Patrol 13 captained by Rosie Taliano & Tom Bunting this afternoon who completed 43 rescues in total with only a limited 12 patrolling members rostered on. There were also 3 rescues in the morning completed by Patrol 10. A big THANK YOU to Waverley Duty Officers, @brontesurfclub, @bondisblsc, @bondilifeguards and @surfrescue30 for your extra assistance. The beach had to be closed due to dangerous conditions, multiple rescues happening all at once and limited resources. @thehughjackman was also spotted assisting with rescues! Thanks Hugh #mysurflife #northbondislsc #northbondi #surflifesaving #rescues #bondibeach #bondi #beach #easter #saturday #bondislsc #bronteslsc #bronte #irb #surfrescue30 #hughjackman
