Hero groom strips down and leaves wedding to save drowning teen

Zac Edwards and his bride, Cindy, were posing for wedding photos on an Alabama beach when a woman's scream alerted them to an 18-year-old struggling to stay afloat in the water.

Welcome to Manliest Moment, where we decide which dude crushed the subtle art of manliness the hardest this week. Next up: A hero groom who left his beach wedding to save a drowning teen.

Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear formal wedding attire.

Zac Edwards and his bride, Cindy, were posing for wedding photos on an Alabama beach when a woman's scream alerted them to an 18-year-old struggling to stay afloat in the water.

The 37-year-old marine science technician tore off his shirt and swam out 150 feet in the hope of rescuing the young man, who'd been pulled out to sea on a boogie board. The strong current made it difficult - as did Edwards' remaining wedding attire - but he managed to keep the man's head above water until first responders, who were already on the scene for a different emergency, came out to meet them with a jet ski.

 

"The current was really strong, and it was stopping us coming in any further," Edwards said, according to a South West News Service report. "I was starting to panic slightly. The pants were making it hard to kick, too.

"But when I saw the first responders, I knew it was going to be okay. A jetski came out to us, and I managed to wedge him up onto it."

"I didn't really take in the gravity of the situation until I laid down that night," he added. "Afterwards my hands were shaking, but the adrenaline was just pumping."

Of course, then he had a reception to get to.

The couple apparently surprised their guests when they arrived at the festivities drenched and covered in sand.

"I didn't bring extra clothes to the wedding, but I did have some board shorts, so I just changed into them," said Edwards, who apparently has never not been calm, cool, and collected. "I was a bit more dressed down than my beautiful bride, but they were more comfortable than my pants were, actually."

Wow. Did Edwards really want to save that guy's life, or was it all an elaborate long game to ditch his uncomfortable formalwear? Either way, he did something that was brave as hell. Bravo, sir.
