US Coastguard saves Oscar-winning star who got lost on kayak trip

Crowe went out for the day with a friend on their kayaks in New York’s Long Island.

They set off from Cold Spring Harbor on Saturday afternoon but when it got dark they got lost and were forced to head for shore in Huntington Bay – 10 miles away from where they began.

The US Coast Guard was patrolling the area and heard Russell calling out from the shore. They then paddled back out into the water and were picked up by the boat.

Neither Russell nor his friend were injured and the coastguard said: “He just needed a little bit of help, he just got a little lost.”

“Thanks to Seth and the boys from the US Coast Guard for guiding the way... 4 hrs 30 mins, 7m (11.2km),” Russell tweeted. Later, he wrote, “Not lost,we knew where exactly we were, paddling around from csh into wind, we ran out of day. Grand adventure eh @chris_feather?”
