The Daily News is aiding in the search for the savior of Jordan’s Lobster Dock heir Brian Jordan after he nearly drowned in Coney Island this weekend. Apparently, around 6 p.m. on Saturday, Jordan jumped into the water off of a Coney Island pier when his speedboat, Starfish, somehow became untethered. To hear the News tell it, he sank like a ton of bricks. Until, that is, a dark-haired, white-shirted figure rescued him from the depths and then mysteriously disappeared.
As feel-good as the story is, even the News couldn’t avoid taking a subtle swipe at him:
It was all pretty odd for a guy who has been around water his whole life. Besides his family’s waterside restaurant, Jordan lives on a houseboat docked at the Venice Marina in Sheepshead Bay; he owns a sailboat and the runaway speedboat.
At the end of the article, Jordan ponders his offered reward, asking, “How do you put a price on a life?”
Hmm… the boat that almost killed you? Or the sailboat? Maybe those super-spiffy rich-guy golf pants you’ve got on in the News’ photo? Oh wait, you’ve already got something in mind?
“I’ll give him a big lobster dinner,” Jordan told the Daily News. “I’m beside myself with thanks.”
Come on, man. Seriously?[where: 11235][where: coney island]
