A hero off the big screen


The well-known actor of films such as They call me Radio, Boat Trip o Norbit, Cuba Gooding Jr., has experienced an action scene in which he was our hero. Saying this may seem very normal if we take into account that we are talking about a Hollywood actor, but this time the difference is that it was not fiction, there were no cameras, nor a director to guide its actors, but rather this Once the events were very real. It happened on May 27, the actor helped a young man after being shot in the neck. The events unfolded as follows:

Cuba Gooding, who was in his car, at the doors of a restaurant located in downtown Hollywood, heard four shots and when he got out of the car he could see how a boy who was bleeding from the neck was barely walking towards him holding his head and, practically instantly, he fainted before his eyes. The actor asked the restaurant for towels, applied them to the boy's neck, stopped a passing police car and waited for the ambulance. Without a doubt, the scene seems 100% from a movie, right? Unfortunately it wasn't, but luckily for the boy, his hero was there: Cuba Gooding Jr.
