Newlyweds Zac and Cindy Edwards were in the middle of taking wedding day photos on Orange Beach, Alabama, when a nearby swimmer got caught in rough currents and started drowning. Zac’s a former lifeguard and member of the Coast Guard, so he stopped the photo shoot to swim in and save the unidentified swimmer.
The groom helped the man back to shore and emergency responders helped the two guys onto the beach. They were fine, but Zac had a nose bleed and warned his brand new wife to keep her distance in her white wedding dress.
“I told her, ‘The grandkids are going to have a story to tell,’” the heroic groom says. “It was a perfect day. Beautiful wedding.”
