Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder was in a boat that capsized in the dangerous currents of the Pailolo Channel off the coast of Hawaii several years ago and, were it not for an alert boater and his daughter, might have drown.  His rescuer, Keith Baxter, recently sustained a major injury in a boating accident himself.  A laceration that nearly took off his leg developed an infection and his treatment costs soared.  One of the women that was on the boat with Pearl Jam's singer when it capsized those many years ago recently ran into Keith's daughter Ashley and learned of her father's plight.  The two started a GoFundMe page that collected $70,000 in donations.  Pearl jam has matched that with a 70k donation.
