Stephen Baldwin Aids, Prays With Woman Suffering Seizure

August 13, 2012|10:11 am

Stephen Baldwin, an actor and self-professed "Jesus freak," is being hailed as somewhat of a hero for rushing to the aid of a woman who was suffering a seizure.

Baldwin was at the Peninsula Hotel in New York last Thursday for an informal meeting with his publicist when the actor heard a "loud bang," according to the New York Daily News.

A woman had fallen to the floor and gone into convulsions, Baldwin told the Daily News.

"It was pretty violent," he described to the local publication.

The outspoken Christian actor said no one aided the woman. Baldwin, meanwhile, said he recognized that the woman had epilepsy (a member in his family has frequent seizures) and went immediately to help her.

As he held her hand, he said a few prayers and made sure her breathing wasn't restricted.

The episode lasted more than three minutes before a nurse arrived on the scene. The woman regained consciousness.

Publicist Brad Taylor told the Daily News, "Stephen Baldwin was a hero to a girl."

The 46-year-old actor, director and producer is the youngest of the Baldwin brothers and is known for being outspoken about his Christian faith.

"Loving Jesus is what's most important to me," he says in his testimony video on IAmSecond.com. "I know it sounds hokey but it's the truth. My life is God's life in me for Him to do with what He wants."
