WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle has done a lot in the pro wrestling world and so, the professional wrestling world respects him for all that he did. Angle is currently retired from professional wrestling, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t keep himself active. In fact, his children are very athletic, as his 11-year-old daughter ended up saving Angle’s life after a disastrous jet ski accident.
The Olympic Gold Medallist was on vacation with his family in Miami, Florida, when he decided to go on a jet ski with his kids. Angle lost control of the watercraft and got thrown into the ocean along with his daughter.
To make matters worse, Kurt Angle’s safety vest malfunctioned, and he legitimately began drowning until his daughter, Giuliana Angle, saved his life. While speaking on his podcast on AdFreeShows.com, Angle recalled the incident and revealed how his daughter ended up becoming his hero.
“Thank god my daughter is like an Olympic-caliber swimmer. I even had the safety vest on me, but it wasn’t working. I was still sinking. I can’t swim. So, I’m in trouble. I couldn’t get above water. I was going under, she kept her composure, and the jet ski got away from us; it was like 50 feet away from us, and she didn’t know whether to go to the jet ski or me, and she came over to me and saved my life.
She pulled me over to the jet ski, swimming 50 yards with me in her hands, and then she pushed me. I couldn’t get myself on the jet ski. My arms are so weak now because of my neck I can’t push myself up. So now, she is putting her hands under my a** and pushing me up on the jet ski, and she got me up there. She jumped up behind me, and I said, ‘You know what, honey? You just saved my life. She really did.”
Giuliana is already viewed as an Olympic-level swimmer by her coaches, so this act of heroism comes as no surprise. We are certainly glad she managed to save her father’s life. There is no doubt Angle is very proud of his daughter and will forever be grateful to her for what she did.
