Patrick Dempsey Saves Lives On And Off The Screen
Doctor McDreamy to the rescue!
Last week, Weston Masset, 17, flipped his car near Patrick Dempsey’s Malibu, California home and found himself upside down and barely conscious.
The Grey’s Anatomy star used a fire extinguisher and a crowbar to pull the teenage boy to safety and then called paramedics while remaining with Masset until he was airlifted to the hospital.
Dempsey then called the boy’s mother, "He had a certain authority in his voice," said Mary Beth Masset. "I asked if he was a paramedic and he said, 'No, this is Patrick Dempsey.' I thought, 'McDreamy?' "
Dempsey’s reps have declined to comment, but the boy is very grateful for the actor’s actions.
"He was there for me. It would have been a lot worse without him."
