Fats Domino Apparently Rescued

Music legend Antoine "Fats" Domino had been reported missing in New Orleans. His agent, Al Embry said that Domino had told him that he had intended to stay in his house in the low-lying 9th ward of New Orleans, with his wife Rosemary and their child, but Embry added that he had not heard from the 77 year old Domino since Sunday night.

On Thursday, Domino’s daughter Karen Domino White reported that he had apparently ridden out the storm in his home, and then had been rescued by boat. White said that she had seen a photo of her father in a photo taken on Monday. The photo appeared in the New Orleans Time-Picayune, and showed her father being helped off a boat by his rescuers.

Fats Domino has sold approximately 10 million records in his long and distinguished career. His biggest hits were "Blueberry Hill", and "Ain’t That A Shame".
