Dustin Hoffman comes to London jogger's rescue

A 27-year-old man who had a sudden cardiac arrest while jogging in London's Hyde Park says he was saved by the actions of actor Dustin Hoffman.

The Hollywood actor was walking by just as lawyer Sam Dempster collapsed, and called for help.

London Ambulance Service paramedics Luke Sullivan and Martin MacArthur said the star was cool, calm and collected.
