In the wake of Saoirse Kennedy Hill’s death, her father, Paul Michael Hill, conquered his fear of heights and water in his late daughter’s honor. On Wednesday, August 7, her grandfather, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, shared the special moment on Instagram. “Saoirse’s Dad, Paul Hill, has a terror of both heights and water. Having grown up in the Catholic ghetto of the Falls Road in Belfast and spent most of his adult life in 38 British prisons, he never learned to swim,” he captioned the photo. “Nevertheless, he wanted to jump off the HH buoy in Saoirse’s honor. He asked us to be there to rescue him when he hit the water.” Scroll through the gallery below to see him take the sentimental plunge.
