Who needs superheroes when you have celebrities? Mila Kunis is the latest star to come to the aid of a civilian in need, and for that we applaud her.
Sources tell TMZ that on Monday a man who works in Kunis' house had a severe seizure -- vomiting, coughing up blood and biting through his tongue -- the 28-year-old Black Swan star rushed to help. According to the source, Kunis turned the 50-year-old man's head to the side to prevent him from choking, while another person stuck a wallet in his mouth to keep him from swallowing his tongue.
One of Kunis's friends dialed 911 and, when an ambulance arrived, Kunis offered to ride with the man to the hospital. He declined her offer, and is now in full recovery, largely thanks to the efforts of Kunis and those around her.
But Mila isn't the only celebrity to make news Tuesday for being in the right place at right time to help someone recently. Also today, the U.K.'s Sun newspaper reported that Dustin Hoffman was out walking in London's Hyde Park 10 days ago when he saw a jogger -- 27-year-old lawyer Sam Dempster -- collapse from what turned out to be a heart attack.
The 74-year-old star of the movie Hero (appropriate, huh?) dashed to Dempster's side, dialed 999 (England's version of 911) for help and stayed with the jogger for 15 minutes while paramedics assisted him. They were able to get Dempster's heart working again, and Hoffman praised them by saying, "Great job, guys." Hoffman only left after Dempster had recovered.
"I want to say 'Thank you' to Dustin Hoffman. He saved my life," Sam, who is now recovering from surgery, tells The Sun. "I have no memory of what happened. The paramedics told me I had been saved by Dustin Hoffman. It's unbelievable."
