The forty six year old has helped a young woman who was having a seizure Thursday at New York City’s Peninsula Hotel, the New York Daily News reports. The star had been meeting up with his publicist, Brad Taylor, when he heard a loud noise coming from the other side of the room.
“All of a sudden every head turned,” Baldwin told the New York Daily News. “It was this girl, fallen on the floor.”
A young woman had suddenly gone into violent convulsions which Baldwin, who grew up with an epileptic family member, immediately recognized as an epileptic seizure. As other patrons ignored the episode –
”A guy right next to us was just sipping his martini and didn’t look up,”
Taylor had said – the actor rushed to her aid.
“I held her hand and said a few prayers,” said Baldwin. The seizure lasted three terrifying minutes before the young woman came to. Baldwin was on hand to comfort her. “She started going, ‘Where am I? What happened?’ And then I asked, ‘Do you have epilepsy?’ and she said, ‘Yes.’ Then she started crying,” he said.
Soon after a nurse arrived on scene and was able to successfully revive the woman.
