Schwarznegger Saves Swimmer Off Hawaiian Coast

A swimmer off the coast of Maui probably is alive because of Arnold Schwarzenegger.

“Access Hollywood” said California´s governor was in the water swimming toward his wife, Maria Shriver, when he passed by a man who was having trouble swimming and breathing. Schwarzenegger asked if he was OK and the guy said “no.”

So, Schwarzenegger grabbed a boogie board. And, here´s where all that weight training helped — while he was treading 20-foot deep water, he picked the man up, put him on the board, and swam with him to shore.

“Access Hollywood” said Schwarzenegger sat with the man for a while on the beach. Before he left, he told the man to “sit here for another 30 minutes.”

Schwarzenegger and his family are vacationing in Hawaii this week.

The man, who is doing fine, thanked the governor and both resumed their vacations.
