Sandra Bullock rescued collapsed extra

GravitySandra Bullock actress Sandra Bullock sure knows how to handle a crisis. The Oscar winner quickly came to the rescue of an extra who collapsed due to heat stroke during filming in New Orleans on the set of her upcoming film, Our Brand Is Crisis. While waiting for emergency responders to arrive, Sandra took measures into her own hands and provided the woman with water and even fanned her in the shade.  An ambulance later arrived and took the woman to a nearby hospital. The woman presumably collapsed because the movie, which films in New Orleans where temperatures are already high, called for heavy coats to be worn. Co-star Billy Bob Thornton was also present but mainly observed from the side. Our Brand Is Crisis is based on the 2005 documentary of the same name and focuses on the use of American political campaign strategies in South America. ~Janine Wyslobicky

    I love that Sandra Bullock helped out. Not sure why they needed to make a comment about Billy Bob Thornton just “observing”. It seems like Sandra had things in hand … the person was suffering from heat stroke because she was wearing a coat in New Orleans’ heat. You certainly don’t need “all hands on deck” to deal with the situation. As I have seen, people dealing with heat stroke, fainting, etc., they are usually a little embarrassed and don’t want others to make a fuss. So, I think one person knowing what to do and comforting the person is enough.

    Lovely lady. Seems to keep her nose clean too – never heard any “dirt” on her in Hollywood.
