The esteemed Jamie Lee Curtis saved her friend’s life last night, according to TMZ. Apparently, Curtis called 911 last night around 9 p.m. in Venice, California when her friend showed signs of an overdose. Curtis supposedly tried driving her friend to the hospital, but realized she needed medical treatment immediately and called for help. TMZ reports:
According to sources, Curtis’ friend had suffered a violent reaction after mixing alcohol with some kind of prescription Rx. We’re told Curtis initially tried to drive her friend to the hospital — hence why the friend was in the backseat — but she decided to call 911 instead when the situation took a turn for the worse.
After getting medical assistance at a hospital nearby, Curtis’ friend was released to go home.
