Russell Crowe


The actor got lost 10 miles east from where he started while kayaking with a friend in the waters off New York's Long Island.

Russell Crowe was rescued by U.S. Coast Guard after he wandered away from his destination during a kayak trip. The actor was doing the water sport with a friend, kicking off their voyage from Cold Spring Harbor but stayed in the water for four and a half hours because they got lost.

The Oscar winner and the unidentified friend set out the journey on Saturday, September 1 afternoon on the Long Island Sound. They got lost 10 miles east from where they started and decided to beach their kayaks in Huntington Bay as it got dark. They noticed the coast guard patrolling the area and Crowe shouted for help.

U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Robert Swieciki said the actor and his friend kayaked their way to the rescue boat at around 10 P.M. The officers then pulled them up and gave them a lift back to Huntington Harbor. "He just needed a little bit of help, he just got a little lost," Swieciki said. "It wasn't really a rescue, really, more of just giving someone a lift."

Swiecki noted that Crowe was a fairly experienced kayaker and no one got injured during the incident. Crowe, who was on Long Island to film "Noah", has thanked the officers via Twitter, writing "Thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way...4 hrs 30 mins, 7m(11.2km)".
