Tali and Ian were kayaking together on Saturday morning when they got into difficulty on the New York river.

Tali, the 22-year-old daughter of Annie Lennox, was rescued by passers-by, the Sheriff’s Office stated.

It’s believed that the couple were not wearing life jackets, and Captain John Watterson added that “alcohol may have played a role” in the incident.

Following the initial incident, Annie’s spokesperson confirmed that she was aware of what had happened and was hoping to find more information.
