The heroic actor Patrick Dempsey, who plays Dr. Derek Shepherd on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” doesn’t just save lives on TV. He also saves them in real life.
Dempsey saved the life of a teenager Weston Masset in Malibu last week after the teenager flipped his car near the actor’s home.
“I was scared for my life, I was upside down,” said Weston Masset.
Masset was knocked unconscious by the crash and was trapped inside the vehicle.
Luckily for Masset, Dempsey saw the car flip and ran to the scene of the accident with a fire extinguisher and a crowbar. He pried the doors open and pulled the teenager to safety, then stayed by his side the whole time to ensure that the boy would be alright.
Masset suffered from a concussion and an eye injury, but will make a full recovery.
His first words on seeing Dempsey pulling him out of the wreck were, “‘Are you famous?” and Dempsey said, “Yeah I’m a doctor,” Masset said.
Dempsey personally called the boy’s mother to reassure her and inform her of the accident.
“He had a certain authority in his voice,” said Masset’s mother Mary Beth Masset. “I asked if he was a paramedic and he said no, ‘this is Patrick Dempsey.’”
“I’m just super grateful. I can’t wait to thank him personally,” said Mary Beth Masset.
