A "Celebrity Big Brother" cast member became a real-world hero Thursday night, reports the New York Daily News. Stephen Baldwin came to the aid of a young woman suffering a seizure, according to the report.
Baldwin was at the Peninsula Hotel in Manhattan with his publicist when he heard a loud bang. "It was this girl, fallen on the floor," Baldwin said. She had gone into convulsions and was foaming at the mouth. No one came to her assistance, the story says.
Baldwin, who had grown up familiar with seizures as a symptom of epilepsy because of a family member’s frequent episodes, got up to help her, the story says.
"I wanted to make sure the young lady was OK and her breathing wasn’t restricted,” he said. She came to after three minutes of the seizure, the story says.
“She started going, ‘Where am I? What happened?’” Baldwin said, according to the report. “And then I asked, ‘Do you have epilepsy?’ and she said, ‘Yes.’ Then she started crying.”
