Stephen Baldwin Rushes To Aid Woman Having A Seizure

Stephen Baldwin to the rescue! The New York Daily News reports that the Baldwin brother became the latest celebrity Good Samaritan on Thursday when he rushed to help an epileptic woman having a seizure at the posh Peninsula Hotel in New York. (In a strange and morbid twist, the incident took place just hours after a Florida man at the hotel committed suicide by jumping off its 22-story-high sun deck.)

"All of a sudden, every head turned because there was this loud bang. It was this girl, fallen on the floor... It was pretty violent," Baldwin, 46, told the publication.

"I held her hand and said a few prayers... I wanted to make sure the young lady was okay and her breathing wasn't restricted."

The born-again Christian (who stars in the upcoming faith-based film "Loving the Bad Man") remained with the woman until a nurse came to resuscitate her. Baldwin also spoke to the young woman's mother by phone.

Baldwin follows in the footsteps of Jennifer Lawrence, Dustin Hoffman and Mila Kunis, high-profile celebrities who have recently played heroes in real life.
