If there was ever a definition for the word 'hero,' it would have John Franklin Riggs' face instead of actual words! Also, the same exact thing would be for the definition of 'swimmer' and 'badass!'
John swam five hours to save his family who were clinging for their lives after their boat had capsized off the coast of Maryland — what have you done lately? Did we mention he did this during A STORM??
Exactly! Watch the report (above) to hear his story! Pretty INsane!
We don't know if we could even swim in a very calm pool for 5 hours for any reason, so we'll just tip our fabulous hat to John and offer to buy him a beer sometime! Ha!
