Brad Pitt came to the rescue when he saved an 11-year-old girl from getting hurt by a massive crowd of excited fans in Gran Canaria, Spain.
The incident occurred when the actor was waving to the mass of fans during the filming of his upcoming movie, Allied.
The young girl, who wanted to get a glimpse of the Inglourious Basterds star, was being pushed up against the fence. Pitt saw the girl, walked to the fence with his security guards and beckoned her to be passed over. He then climbed over the fence and reached over to her, as reported by the Independent.
The anxious and distressed girl was pulled out from the crowd by the actor and his team. She stayed with him and the crew of the movie on the backlot “until she calmed down.” Pitt was by her side until the medical team arrived at the scene.
María Dolores Hernández, the girl’s mother, said she “sought help from the American star, because (he) was the only one who paid attention to what was happening to her daughter in the front row.”
The World War II drama Allied is directed by Robert Zemeckis, whose credits include Cast Away (2000) and Forrest Gump (1994), and stars French Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard, as reported by Local.es.
The website also notes that the Canary Islands have become a popular destination for Hollywood films. The fourth movie in the Bourne series, featuring Matt Damon in the lead role, was shot there in 2015.
