Close call for Russell Crowe!!!
This weekend, the Academy Award winner was kayaking with a friend off of the Cold Spring Harbor on the Long Island Sound when they got lost.
It was already nighttime, so they decided to head to shore until they could receive help - they were a whole ten miles from where they originally were supposed to land.
Luckily, the Coast Guard were patrolling the area around 10 p.m. and heard the Noah actor yell out - the actor and his friend then paddled over the Coast Guard's boat where they were lifted onto the boat and given a ride back to Huntington Harbor.
Crowe sent out a special message for his new friends who had picked him up.
Here's what he said on Twitter:
"Kayak;Cold Spring/Huntington Harbour, thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way…4 hrs 30 mins, 7m(11.2km)"
We're so glad that the actor is safe and sound! And a big shout out to the Coast Guard who made sure of that.
Now that's a CRAZY labor day!!!
