Natalie 'could have been saved'
The lifeguard captain who helped pull Natalie Wood's body from the water nearly 30 years ago says he believes the actress could have been saved had a search begun earlier for her.
Former Los Angeles County supervising rescue boat captain Roger Smith tells the Los Angeles Times that he was alerted that Wood was missing at 5.11am on November 29, 1981. That was some four hours after she went missing from a yacht off Santa Catalina Island during a trip with her husband Robert Wagner and Christopher Walken.
The Sheriff's Department reopened the death investigation last week.
