The Bachelorette star Hannah Brown saved a man from “drowning” after he was dragged by a strong current while white water rafting.
A woman took to Twitter to share the news as she wrote: “How fun Hannah Brown saved my boyfriend from drowning in the Ocoee River today.”
The thread continued: “She was on the river with us ...
“Our raft flipped, and her and her family were on the trip with us. She ended up pulling my bf onto their raft after the current took him.
“I didn’t know who she was but her mom said she had just won DWTS and that she was the Bachelorette!”
Brown’s brother Patrick verified the story when he posted a picture of the two at Ocoee Paddleboarding & Watersports.
He captioned the photo: “Took on the rapids with the fam jam! I got to relive my lifeguard days and Hannah thinks she’s apart of the Coast Guard now... #rescuemission.”
Reacting to the news Brown wrote: “Matt James is the Bachelor.
”I cannot contain my excitement for this amazing human making history as the first Black Bachelor – to God be the Glory!
“This man is as good as it gets y’all, and that’s coming from a previous skeptic (lolz). I am so blessed to now call you friend.
”You’ve supported and encouraged me in some of the hardest moments lately and I’m so freaking pumped to support and encourage you as you get ready to go on an adventure of a lifetime!
“#1 Matt James fan right here!”
