Russell Crowe had to get his truck winched out of a dam after the brakes failed.
The 'Noah' actor and his sons Charles, nine, and Tennyson, six, watched the vehicle career out of control on their farm, crashing through a fence before coming to a watery standstill.
Revealing the incident on his Twitter account, Russell said: ''What a morning #1... Farm staffer jumps out of truck, top of the hill, handbrake fails, trucks careens through a fence, 300m into a dam
''Steep on that hill, truck took out two panels of post and rail, immediate momentum, missed everything, hole in 1 to the dam
''What a morning #2 boys and I follow it's path of destruction, as it is sinking, windscreen wipers keep going, good advert for Toyota (sic)''
Despite the potentially-serious incident, the truck was retrieved without damage and little Tennyson hailed the drama as the ''best day ever''.
In other tweets, Russell added: ''Wam #3... brother arrives with the John Deere, gets in freezing dam to hook up the truck, beautiful job retrieving the submarine.
''Wam #4 Youngest announces ''best day on the farm ever''... no one hurt, only pride. Told old mate,''days like this'll get you a new nic name
''Wam #5 In a dry, Australian acceptance of the inevitable, old mate squints to the middle distance and softly states, ''yes, they do'' (sic)''
