Tampa police and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office are calling Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Blaine Gabbert a “citizen hero” because he and his two brothers saved four people from Hillsborough Bay after a helicopter crashed on Thursday night.
Gabbert, age 33, had been out Jet Skiing with his two younger brothers, Tyler and Brett, when they came across a submerged plane with a pilot and three passengers, the Hupp family, who had just fallen from the sky on approach to Peter O. Knight Airport.
“I kind of remember hearing a faint noise,” Gabbert said. “I just remember looking to the west and seeing what almost looked like a crew boat in the water that had broken up into about four pieces. And I vaguely remember seeing maybe two yellow life jackets, so I said, “Okay, we’ve got to go check this out.
Gabbert told them how to inflate their life jackets. He has spent 30 years of his life on the water and believes himself a strong swimmer, even though he has never taken a formal water safety course. Blaine Williamson Gabbert is an American football quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the National Football League.
