In 1951 After His Plane Crashed Into The Ocean, Clint Eastwood Swam 3 Miles to Safety

Eastwood is a hell of an actor, but the only problem that he has in acting is that he can play one role – A Bad Ass. And as if anyone needed more proof that Clint Eastwood was a hell of a beast, this guy cheated death as he swam to shore from a sinking Airplane.

According to Wikipedia,  In 1950, Eastwood began a one-year stint as a lifeguard for the United States Army during the Korean War and was posted to Fort Ord in California. While on leave in 1951 Eastwood was a passenger onboard a Douglas AD bomber that ran out of fuel and crashed into the ocean near Point Reyes.  After escaping from the sinking aircraft he and the pilot swam 3 miles to safety.
