Patrick Dempsey, actor and racing driver, saved a teenager’s life from his wrecked Mustang just outside his house in Malibu, California. Looks like Patrick has learned a lot from his role in hit TV series “Grey’s Anatomy,” as he pulled the barely conscious boy trapped under his flipped car, took him to safety, and called in paramedics.
Patrick has apparently acted like a hero, wrestling the car’s door with a crow bar to get it open. After the paramedics took the boy to the hospital, Patrick himself called his mother to inform her. The crash victim suffered only a concussion and an eye injury. He was lucky Patrick was around though. God knows what would happen if he’d crashed near Zach Braff’s home.
Patrick’s reaction to the incident was partly due to his role as a doctor in his TV show, and partly because he’s a professional racing driver and has seen enough car crashes to know how to handle the situation. Anyway, it was a heroic act by Dempsey and he deserves all the credit.
