The other Baldwin brother. No the other one. No the other one, came to the aid of a woman suffering a seizure while out in New York City Thursday evening.
Stephen Baldwin, (Bio Dome, Half Baked), was chillaxin at the Peninsula Hotel bar when he heard a “loud bang” from across the room. Baldwin told The New York Daily News:
“All of a sudden every head turned because there was this loud bang. It was this girl, fallen on the floor.”
The 46-year-old was out with his publicist working on getting a new modeling agent for his daughter when he was startled into action. The woman in question was suffering “violent” convulsions, she moaned, her eyes were rolling to the back of her head and she was foaming at the mouth.
While many in attendance apparently either refused to act or were too shocked to know what to do, Baldwin rushed to her aid noticing immediately the signs of an epileptic seizure. Stephen had grown up with a family member who suffered with epilepsy.
Baldwin knelt beside the woman and held her hand. He said a prayer for her and waited as the seizure subdued after approximately 3 minutes.
“I wanted to make sure the young lady was okay and her breathing wasn’t restricted. She started going, ‘Where am I? What happened?’ And then I asked, ‘Do you have epilepsy?’ and she said, ‘Yes.’ Then she started crying.”
Good for Baldwin acting on his experience. The woman, who remained unidentified as of the report, was said to be okay after a nurse arrived.
