New Delhi:

Hugh Jack­man has en­gaged in his fair share of on-screen hero­ics play­ing the X-men char­ac­ter Wolver­ine. But the Aus­tralian ac­tor is be­ing hailed as a real-life hero af­ter sav­ing his son from strong cur­rents at Syd­ney’s Bondi beach. The Nine Net­work showed video of the Aus­tralian ac­tor bring­ing an­other swim­mer to shore last Satur­day be­fore he had to help 15-year-old Os­car from the waves.

In the footage, the ac­tor is also shown beck­on­ing other swim­mers to shore, away from a rip cur­rent flow­ing out to sea. For­mer Na­tional Rugby League star Daniel Conn told the Daily Mail Aus

tralia that he was on the beach chat­ting to the ac­tor when the tide sud­denly changed. “Os­car got caught up with it so I swam out to go and get him and bring him back but he got caught up in it again and he [Hugh] just went into full on Hugh Jack­man mode.”
