Florida Feels: Dad Risks Life to Save Daughter

The body of Thomas Zakrewski, a 46-years-old hero, was found in the Gulf of Mexico after he sacrificed himself to save his 8-year-old daughter.

The Georgia native jumped into a dangerous rip current to hand his daughter off to their mother before being swept under to drown to death. The family had been walking along a sandbar in Upper Captiva Island (Fort Myers).

The wife had also jumped into the water to save their daughter, but the father passed the child to her before succumbing to the tides.

He is survived by the daughter and his wife.
