Dempsey takes pointers from Grey’s Anatomy character
Patrick Dempsey helps in the rescue of a teenager from a car wreck!
Patrick Dempsey, Dr. McDreamy, took his years of acting like a doctor and acted like a doctor. In Malibu, 17-year-old Weston Massett crashed and flipped his Mustang right outside of the home of Patrick Dempsey. The actor came to the rescue with a crowbar in hand to pry the doors open.
Patrick Dempsey rescued Massett from the wreckage, and when the teen opened his eyes and saw the actor looking down on him, he asked, “Are you famous?” Dempsey jokingly replied, “I’m a doctor,” according to TMZ.
The Patrick Dempsey rescue doesn’t stop there. Apparently, the actor was the one who called the boy’s mother and told her about the accident and kept her calm while he did it. The teen was airlifted to a nearby hospital, and Patrick Dempsey reportedly followed him to make sure he was okay.
TMZ reports that the teen didn’t suffer any serious injuries, but he is recovering from a mild concussion and a “stretched” optic nerve.
Shawn Ryan, a show runner for The Shield took to Twitter to confirm the story, “True Story: Grey’s Anatomy actor Patrick Dempsey pulled my friend’s son out of overturned car after bad accident on Tuesday. #GoodDude”
