Hollywood actor Sean Penn is being hailed as a hero after personally saving two lives in Haiti, according to US reports.
The Milk star reportedly rescued a woman and an orphaned child who were both badly injured in the rubble of a collapsed building.
Penn – who runs the Jenkins-Penn Haitian Relief Organization – was already in the country helping with relief work.
According to reports, the star drove for 90 minutes with his daughter Dylan to rescue the woman and child, who were trapped in rubble outside Port-au-Prince, possibly from an aftershock.
An eyewitness said Penn helped to extricate the woman, who suffered leg injuries, and the child, who suffered head injuries.
Penn drove them in his truck to the University of Miami hospital camp in Port-au-Prince.
