10 Celebrities Who Have Saved Lives
Although celebrities are generally held in very high esteem by the vast majority of the public, this is usually because of their fame and fortune rather than anything they have actually done to benefit mankind. That isn’t to say though that celebrities don’t do their part. In fact, many are responsible for all kinds of charitable endeavors or aid appeals that intend to help those less fortunate than themselves. However, a few famous figures have actually put their own lives on the line by saving someone else who is in immediate danger, showing just how selfless they are.
Controversial comedian Doug Stanhope, who has done a number of routines joking about suicide, actually talked down a man who was threatening to jump from a bridge in Scotland last year.
