Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood was rescued from a
burning boat on Wednesday off the coast of Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, by a group
of journalists. According to Reuters, Globo network TV reported that one
of the engines of the small pleasure craft, carrying Wood and 11 other
passengers, burst into flames. The cause of the fire is unknown. The Stones are
on the South American leg of their "Bridges to Babylon" tour and are scheduled
to play Rio on Saturday.
