Gerard Butler Close Call

Gerard Butler Close Call, Gerard Butler got into a sea of trouble Monday after he was pulled underwater and had to be rescued during production of a new movie about surfing in California.

The San Jose Mercury News reports the 42-year-old Butler was paddling out with three professional surfers when waves taller than 15-feet broke in front of them, sending the 300 actor and the surfboard he was tethered to under the water.

A water safety guard on a jet ski immediately rushed to the actor's aid. Though shaken, Butler was not injured nor were any of the surfers who accompanied him. Still, he went to Stanford Medical Center for observation and was later released.
