Thanks to the Pirate, we know this story ...
On top of trying to save California, he takes time to save drowning man.
A swimmer off the coast of Maui is probably alive because of Arnold Schwarzenegger."Access Hollywood" says Governor Schwarzenegger 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" says 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." The man is doing fine.
Schwarzenegger and his family are vacationing in Hawaii this week.
It's just one more thing I love about the Governator ... Back in my yout, when I was the Head Lifeguard at Lake of the Pines, I was known as Lori Lifeguard.
