TV's 'Cake Boss' helped from fogged-in boat in NYC

Reality TV's "Cake Boss" has a new perspective on the ingredients for a successful boat trip after he and his family got stuck in the fog in New York Harbor.

Buddy Valastro tweeted his thanks to the city's police and fire departments after the mishap Friday night. And, he added, next time his family takes the boat out at night, they "need to check the forecast."

The fire department says authorities were called to help people get off a boat stranded near Staten Island around 9:30 p.m.

Firefighter Chris Tucker tells the Daily News he and firefighter Paul Patras used a thermal-imaging camera to find the 36-foot boat and tow it to safety.

Valastro stars in TLC's "Cake Boss." He owns Carlo's Bakery, which has four locations in New Jersey.
