His dad may have been born to run, but Evan Springsteen was born to kayak.

Well, maybe not.

The 15-year-old son of rockers Bruce Springsteen and Patti Scialfa had to be pulled from an Adirondack lake by forest rangers after his kayak overturned.

The incident occurred July 2, when the family was in Lake Placid, where the couple's daughter Jessica was competing in the resort village's annual horse show.

Officials with the state Department of Environmental Conservation said forest rangers on routine patrol spotted an overturned kayak some distance from shore. When they pulled up, they spotted a teen in the water.

The rangers got the boy into their boat and took him to the rented lakeside camp where his family was staying.

The teen Springsteen wasn't hurt in the incident, which occurred while he was on an outing with friends.

A department spokesman said the 56-year-old rocker thanked the rangers for rescuing his son.
