LONDON (AP) - A man who had a cardiac arrest while jogging in London’s Hyde Park says his life was saved with help from a famous passer-by _ Dustin Hoffman.
Sam Dempster said Tuesday that the actor waited with him after he collapsed on April 27 until paramedics arrived.
“It is essential to get a history of what has happened, and he witnessed the jogger go down. He was the main witness and saw him stagger and go down,” Macarthur said. “He stayed on the scene for the whole duration of the resuscitation which was about 15 minutes. He was very concerned.”
Representatives of the “Tootsie” and “Rain Man” star, who has a home in London, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
