Ex-Terminator and present California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger became a real hero last week when he saved a swimmer from drowning.

The 56-year-old was vacationing with his family in Maui, Hawaii, when he helped the struggling swimmer by diving into the sea and bringing him back to the beach.

An onlooker said: "Arnold sat with this guy for quite a while as he had cramps, was breathless and a bit shaken-up. He was also overawed by having just been rescued by the Terminator.

"It's not every day one of the world's most famous movie heroes saves you from drowning. I'm sure he'll be telling all his friends although they might not believe him."
