Sean Penn's rescue bid sinks
EFFORTS by Hollywood actor Sean Penn to aid New Orleans victims stranded by
Hurricane Katrina foundered badly overnight, when the boat he was piloting to
launch a rescue attempt sprang a leak.Penn had planned to rescue children
waylaid by Katrina's flood waters, but apparently forgot to plug a hole in the
bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch.
The actor, known for his political activism, was seen wearing what
appeared to be a white flak jacket and frantically bailing water out of the
sinking vessel with a red plastic cup.
With the boat loaded with members of Penn's entourage, including a personal
photographer, one bystander taunted the actor: "How are you going to get any
people in that thing?"
