Robin Thicke and Angie Everhart among tourists rescued from hurricane-hit Mexican resort

Singer Robin Thicke and actress Angie Everhart are among the tourists who had to be rescued by Mexican military officials on Tuesday (16Sep14) after Hurricane Odile cut short their vacations in Cabo San Lucas.

The Category 3-level storm ravaged the Mexican peninsula when it hit on Monday (15Sep14), leaving an estimated 30,000 holidaymakers stranded in the coastal resort.


Local authorities advised US citizens to make their way safely to local airports, where Mexican government officials had organised for military evacuation flights to take travellers home.


Thicke, who had been vacationing with his son Julian and the tot's nanny, and Trigger Happy star Everhart, both took heed of the advice and waited patiently in line to be flown out of the disaster zone.


According to TMZ.com, they were not given any special treatment and boarded a plane on Tuesday. The flight had a layover in Mexico City before heading on to Los Angeles, where the aircraft landed on Wednesday (17Sep14).


Thicke and Everhart weren't the only stars to be affected by Hurricane Odile - rocker Sammy Hagar had to scrap plans for his annual birthday bash in Cabo San Lucas after his holiday home, his Cabo Wabo Cantina and the local airport were seriously damaged in the natural disaster.
