Penn's New Orleans Rescue Efforts Sunk
By WENN
........................................ ....
Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn's well-intentioned attempt to save children from the floods of New Orleans, Louisiana, failed miserably when his decrepit boat started leaking dangerously.

The Mystic River star, who was desperate to do "whatever I can to help,"reportedly forgot to fix a hole in the rescue vessel, which promptly started sinking as he furiously scooped water out of the boat with a plastic cup.

Penn allegedly attracted criticism from onlookers when they saw the boat was already crammed with Penn's entourage--including a photographer - before any flood victims climbed onboard.

One onlooker said, "How are you going to get any people in that thing?"

So what is that black thing someone's holding next to Penn's left cheeK?

I don't like Sean Penn much at all, but I do have to give him credit for actually trying to help, even if it was with a leaky boat.

The handle for the outboard motor. You can see about 10% of the motor housing at the right of the photo.

It's less about helping hurricane victims than it is about photos of Sean Penn helping hurricane victims. Why else load the boat with a camera crew when you could leave it empty and take people out the stranded or else load it up with supplies for the harcore folks that refuse to leave.

It's a photo op.

Sean Penn could buy a truck load of food and drive to the Astrodome and shake hands and give hugs to folks and do more good that way. It's less glamorous, but more genuine.
