‘Shark Tank’ Costar Robert Herjavec Makes Lake Rescue Of Ex-Pro Hockey Goalie & Family


The family of former pro hockey goalie Tom Lawson now has a summer story to tell about the time they were rescued by a Shark.

Shark Tank panelist Robert Herjavec was jet skiing on Lake Joseph in Ontario, Canada, when he saw a man frantically waving for assistance. The stranded family included Lawson, his wife Breann, daughters Ava and Faith and son Luke.

The sun was setting and the family was not in a boat meant to be on the water at night. They were out of gas and basically stranded.

Herjavec tied a rope to his jet ski and towed them back to safety. He posted a video about the incident on his Instagram, and Lawson’s wife also gave an online salute (see below).

Lawson played pro hockey for 12 seasons — the first seven in North American minor leagues and the rest in Russia, including two season in the country’s elite KHL. His best season was in 2002-03, when he led the the East Coast Hockey League’s Fort Wayne Komets to a division title.
