Hugh Jackman played lifeguard Saturday after his 15-year-old son got stuck in a riptide in Australia.

Jackman was at Bondi Beach in Sydney when reports say the currents suddenly changed, causing a strong riptide in the water. His son, Oscar, got trapped in the waves and you can see from the video, dad had to step in and help.

Lucky for Hugh, there were plenty of other people around, including lifeguards, who assisted with the rescue and got Oscar to shore.

A rep for the actor told ABC News, "Hugh and Oscar are completely fine. It looks more dramatic than it was." 

The guy can do it all.
