Chris Hemsworth and his family rescued. He is an Australian actor from Star Trek and Thor and what happened is that he along with his family had been rescued off the coast of the Canary Islands when their catamaran had run into some trouble on November 24, 2013.
He was aboard with his wife Elsa Pataky, who is pregnant and along with the, was their eighteen month old daughter called India Rose. The vessel had run aground.
A lifeboat, a Civil Guard patrol boat and a helicopter were scrambled to come to the aid of them, there were six passengers all together. They were brought to shore safely. Also there were ambulances on hand just in case, at this time it is not known her was sailing the sea craft when the accident did occur.
A source told MailOnline.com:
“Nobody was hurt but any kind of rescue at sea is a scary event, especially for a pregnant woman with a young child.”
Ironically, Chris was on the catamaran during a break from filming ‘In The Heart Of The Sea’, about the sinking of a whaling ship in the Pacific in 1820.
The vessel was hired by the film’s production company to take them Playa de Santiago, off the north west coast of Africa, but they got into trouble close to San Sebastian, which is one of the smaller of the islands in the Spanish archipelago.
It is not thought any of the film’s other stars – which include Cillian Murphy, Brendan Gleeson and Benjamin Walker – were on board the catamaran at the time.
