Dustin Hoffman To the Rescue, Saves Young London Man’s Life!

Funny how bad news travels fast but the positive stuff has about a 2 week lag time.  Back on April 27th in London’s Hyde Park a 27 year old man was jogging when he collapsed.  Apparently he suffered a heart attack.  Hoffman who had been near called the ambulance and waited with the jogger until the paramedics arrived.  Hoffman stayed by the man’s side until the paramedics were successful in resuscitating him.

Is that really saving the mans life?

According to Martin Macarthur one of the paramedics….Yes!

“We got there very quickly and it was obvious [Dempster] was in cardiac arrest. He was taking dying breaths so we had to act fast, Dustin had turned him over on to his back, which was really useful and would have assisted in making sure his airways were open.”

If Hoffman hadn’t rushed forward to assist, the situation’s outcome could’ve been “very bad,

Dempster, the jogger created a blog to capture his recovery  progress. On the website he thanked the 74 year old actor although he doesn’t personally remember anything.

Iwant to say thank you to Dustin Hoffman. He saved my life, I have no memory of what happened. The paramedics told me I had been saved by him. It’s unbelievable. I can’t wait to go running in the park again.

Ryan Gosling broke up that fight in the city, Patrick Dempsey saved the guy who crashed on his lawn and now Hoffman in the park, these guys are taking the term “drama” a little too personal.
