UPDATE- USC investigating that Shaw wasn't injured during rescue

Original Article:
USC fifth-year senior cornerback Josh Shaw injured both of his ankles while saving his 7-year old nephew over the weekend. Per ESPN:
quote:

Just hours after being voted a team captain on Saturday, Shaw was attending a family function when he saw his 7-year-old nephew, who does not know how to swim, struggling in a nearby pool. Instinctively, Shaw jumped from a second-floor balcony onto concrete below and crawled into the pool where he was able to help his nephew to safety, according to a release from the school.

After getting his nephew to safety, Shaw made his way to a ladder and pulled himself from the water.

"I would do it again for whatever kid it was, it did not have to be my nephew," Shaw said. "My ankles really hurt, but I am lucky to be surrounded by the best trainers and doctors in the world. I am taking my rehab one day at a time, and I hope to be back on the field as soon as possible."
Last season, Shaw started all 14 games for USC.

The Trojans open the year against Fresno State on Saturday.

First class all the way. I hope I would have the courage(stupidity) to do that.
