Andre Drummond Shows 'Not All Heroes Wear Capes' as He Saves His Son From Drowning

Andre Drummond showed that 'not all heroes wear capes' as he rescued his two-year-old son from a pool accident. 

The two-time NBA All-Star shared footage from a home Ring camera, which showed Deon King Drummond sitting on the edge of the pool with other adults around. Suddenly, the two-year-old falls in, and Andre launches into dad mode. 

The 28-year-old runs into the frame, jumping into the pool fully clothed after his son within seconds. 

"NOT ALL HEROS [sic] WEAR CAPES," Andre captioned the video on Twitter, including two facepalming emojis. The Philadelphia 76ers star added that it was "a parents worst nightmare [sic]" and "no one was harmed in this video."
