Stephen Baldwin Saves Woman's Life?
Stephen Baldwin Aids Woman Having Seizure
While at the Peninsula Hotel Thursday night, Stephen Baldwin saved a woman having a seizure when he came to her aid.
Baldwin, who was sitting at a bar at the hotel with his publicist, Brad Taylor, helped the woman until help arrived.
Baldwin and Taylor were meeting to discuss, of all things, getting a new modeling agent for his daughter.
Baldwin told NY Daily News, "All of a sudden every head turned because there was this loud bang. It was this girl, fallen on the floor."
He explains her seizure, which included her eyes rolling back and foam at the mouth, as "pretty violent," with Taylor explaining, "A guy right next us was just sipping his martini and didn't look up. Two other girls ran over to the corner."
Baldwin rushed to help her, recognizing it as an epileptic seizure, saying, "I held her hand and said a few prayers. I wanted to make sure the young lady was okay and her breathing wasn't restricted."
Following the seizure, which lasted more than three minutes, "She started going, ‘Where am I? What happened?'" Baldwin said.
Baldwin said he asked if she had epilepsy, which she said she did.
A nurse arrived and called the girl's mother, with Baldwin filling in the gaps about the episode.
Baldwin said of the incident, "It was kind of sweet and innocent and informal and weird at the same time. When it was over, I never got her name and they never asked for mine. I'm just glad she was okay."
