(WINK) FORT MYERS, Fla.- A woman says her husband drowned after saving her from a rip current off Miami Beach.
“He did the most amazing thing in the world that he gave his life for me,” Kendra Smith said of her husband, 34-year-old Sherrod Whittington. “I appreciate that, I really do and I’m going to honor him until the day I die because of that… He’ll always be my hero.”
Whittington was not breathing when he was pulled from the water Sunday afternoon at the same time that other people who got caught in the currents were rescued by lifeguards.
