You don’t have to be a hero to do something heroic. Sometimes all it takes is looking the fight or flight response in the face, and choosing to do battle. At their essence, the people who are oft-worshiped as celebrities are just regular Joes with some exceptional talent, or a lot of luck. Whatever the case, when you’re in the public eye, there can be a growing confidence that comes with fan-hood of thousands, or millions. The following 11 celebrities defied their comfort zone, when they acted heroically on these occasions.
10. Jack Osbourne
Imagine: you’re swimming in Hawaii, you’ve gone too far from shore, you greatly underestimated the power of the Pacific Ocean and the underlying current has completely exhausted you. You give in. You give up. You freak out. You have a heart attack. That happened to a woman who was pulled to shore only to be assisted by Jack Osbourne, and five other kind citizens. Fortunately for the woman, a Japanese doctor was on site, and Jack himself was trained in CPR from his police reserve work. After administering first-aid, they got the woman onto a golf cart where Jack continued to doing chest compressions in order to resuscitate the heart-attack/drowning victim. Yes, the woman survived. Yes, Jack remained quiet about the whole thing, and wished to remain anonymous. Unfortunately for him, his doting new wife chose to tweet about it.
