Jennifer Garner Opens Up About Scary Kayak Incident With Daughter Violet: There Was A ‘Current Pulling Us To The Ocean'
Jennifer Garner has definitely nailed the art of being a good mom. Despite her incredibly successful career, she always manages to find time for her three kids, whom she shares with ex-husband Ben Affleck. No matter what it is, selling cookies outside the grocery store or traveling to explore the world, Garner tries as hard as she can to be the best mom for her children.
But one of her recent endeavors could have had a very tragic ending.
Kayaking in Sweden
During her visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Garner shared with a host a scary story she and her daughter were involved in. Last month, the actress and her eldest child, 12-year-old Violet, traveled to Stockholm, Sweden to explore the city and learn about the culture.
While walking around Stockholm, the mother-daughter duo noticed tourists kayaking in a river and thought it would be a fun adventure to rent a boat. But little did they know that danger was waiting for them.
When what supposed to be a 10-minute journey turned into an hour of paddling, the two realized that something was wrong. Garner recalled she started seeing bridges and big boats and then her daughter noticed a stoplight in the water. After that, they started feeling a current pulling them to the ocean.
Luckily, the two were saved by a handsome man named Mattias, whom the actress said she will never forget. Jennifer took to Instagram to share her story.
She captioned the photo with:
On a pre-middle-school sneak away with my eldest…Did I get us lost in a kayak? Yes. Did we paddle as hard as we could for 100 hours and end up in a shipping lane? I’m afraid so. Did we have to be rescued? Yup.
