I am the daughter of Adam Wireman the person that was with him was his almost 11 yr old Chase grandson. My dad pushed my son to shore and told my son dont get out of that tub for nothing my dad told he was drawing. but he had heart attack but he made sure before he died he got chase to shore. Chase said when got were he could touch he fipped the tub and my dad grabed and then my son got him almost to shore then the life guard got him and did cpr. We never thought he would die like this. My dad loved the ocean he went every year He always said he wanted to die there. But it was way to soon. We Love You Dad RIP. You died our hero you save Chase.
