Okay, these are not from this event, but do depict superdad Hugh Jackman pulling his kids, Ava and Oscar, from the shores of St. Tropez. So I had these gems in my mind when I heard about this weekend’s bizarre scare…

 The actor’s 10-year-old daughter Ava and 15-year-old son Oscar became caught in a rip at Bondi beach in Australia on Sunday- and with the help of a couple beach dudes and a lifeguard, the two children were pulled to safety before things could have gotten super dangerous. Swimmer Peter Adam recounts the incident, via 9 News Australia:

“His daughter was struggling to get on to the sand bar so I reached down, grabbed her arm and put my arm up to Hugh to make a chain to pull us up on the sand bar,” he said.

“That’s what you do with any family out there.”

Dan Conn said he helped drag the children to the sand bar, but Oscar was again carried out by the current.

“I think he was under a bit of pressure with the two kids at once but he was pretty cool, calm and collected, as Hugh always is I suppose,” he said.

Mr Conn said Jackman was “definitely a bit of a superdad, superhero, and he’s a super bloke too.”

Lifeguards and lifesavers then assisted, bringing the teenager to safety.

Bondi lifeguard Trent Falson said Jackman thanked him multiple times.

“He said you guys did an amazing job, I think he thanked me about three times on the way up the sand,” he said.

The beach was closed for the rest of the day, and I assume Jackman and his kids probably went back to the card and Hugh had a good cry, maybe got some ice cream after. SO SCARY!
