Tina Fey has many talents — but now she can add lifesaver to her resume.
During an appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday, the “30 Rock” star, 50, revealed that she helped save the life of a stranger who was kayaking in the Hudson River
Fey explained that she and her family rented a house outside NYC to get fresh air in the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The first morning that we were there, I was standing outside and we were looking out — you could see the Hudson River from where we are, it’s so pretty — and I just heard something,” she said.
She couldn’t distinguish if it was someone asking for help or a bird making noises, so she recruited her daughter Alice, 15, and husband Jeff Richmond, 59, to help figure out what was going on. Finally, they decided to call the police for help.
“The cops take off and then we found out a couple of hours later that it was a guy who flipped a kayak in the Hudson and was floating, no oar!” she said. “They found him a mile north in the river.”
“Tina, you saved a man’s life!” Fallon exclaimed.
“He doesn’t know it was us, but isn’t that crazy?” she replied. “Also, never kayak! Why? In the Hudson? That’s not like a stream. It’s like a rat toilet!”
