Private life

Bazell's father is Robert Bazell, chief science and health correspondent for NBC News. His mother is Ilene Tanz Gordon. He has one sibling, sister Rebecca Bazell, an illustrator and writer.[3]

In August 1982, Josh Bazell, then 12 years of age, and his family were left adrift at sea in a 14-foot (4.3 metre) aluminum boat when it ran out of fuel 2 miles (3.2 kilometres) from Grand Cayman island. Josh's father swam to shore to summon help but on returning, the boat with Margot (the step-mother), Rebecca and Josh aboard, had drifted away and could not be found. The search involved many private vessels, four military aircraft and a Coast Guard cutter. In the afternoon of the fourth day the Japanese tanker Arabia Addas happened upon the boat, which had drifted to a position 40 miles (64 km) from Grand Cayman. The family were re-united that night aboard the tanker. The family were afterwards described as "in absolutely perfect condition - a bit skinny and suntanned".[4]
