During a comedy show in Phoenix, Arizona recently, a woman began having a seizure. Ken Jeong stopped his comedic act and rushed to her aid.
World's collided for the then doctor-now-actor when the audience members began to witness a startling event.
Last Saturday, a woman in the third row was experiencing a seizure during the beginning of the show. According to "TMZ," Jeong first thought that the crowd was heckling him after he heard some commotion from the crowd. He quickly realized someone was having a potentially life-threatening emergency.
“He couldn’t see what was going on with the lights,” Heather Holmberg, an audience member, told "USA Today." “He was playing with them from the stage for a second, and it was like, ‘No, no, no. We need you!’ He realized there was an issue, and he came over. It was a moment where time stands still. Someone was having a crisis. There was a hush over the room.”
The 48-year-old actor jumped from the stage and cared for the woman until paramedics arrived and rushed her to the hospital.
After the woman left, the crowd began to applaud Jeong for his heroic actions. After he gathered himself, he continued on with his show.
Jeong earned his medical degree from the University of North Carolina at the Chapel Hill School of Medicine. He is still a licensed physician today.
He is known for his movie hits like “The Hangover,” “Knocked Up,” and for his latest, short-lived ABC sitcom, “Dr. Ken.”
