48 year old Oscar winning actor Russell Crowe ended up needing rescue
Saturday night after he and a friend managed to get lost while kayaking
on Long Island sound. The pair headed out off Cold Spring Harbor
mid-afternoon but were unable to make their way back by darkness, and
were forced to land about 11 miles from where they started. Around 10
pm, a Coast Guard patrol heard Crowe's cries for help. Crowe and his
friend paddled out to the Coast Guard boat, where they were taken aboard
and given a ride back to their starting point. According to the
Associated Press, the Coast Guard crew did not recognize Crowe.
