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 yesterday that the actor waited with him after he collapsed on April 27 until paramedics arrived.
Dempster initially credited Hoffman with having summoned an ambulance, but the London Ambulance Service said someone else had made the emergency call.
Martin Macarthur, one of the paramedics on the scene, said Hoffman described seeing Dempster collapse and froth at the mouth.
Representatives of the "Tootsie" and "Rain Man" star, who has a home in London, did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
