Dustin Hoffman was across the pond in London when he came across a jogger in distress. Twenty-seven-year-old Sam Dempster was winding down his four-mile trek through Hyde Park in Kensington, West London, when he suddenly went into cardiac arrest. Hoffman saw Demspter collapse and he rushed right over to him. The Oscar winner called paramedics and told them Demspter was frothing at the mouth. When he came to at the hospital, the young lawyer learned the identity of his hero. ‘When my friends told me Dustin Hoffman had saved my life, I thought it was a joke and they were trying to cheer me up,” said Dempster. “Now I know it’s true, it still feels surreal. He is my new favorite actor.”
