Ndamukong Suh, the famous (or infamous, if you prefer) defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions reportedly saved comedian Louie Anderson from drowning (along with help from famed diver Greg Louganis). You couldn’t make this up.

Suh is to appear on Splash, a reality show about diving, a move even his teammates have reportedly spoken out against. I guess it’s a good thing for Anderson he was there. TMZ reports:

Sources close to the production tell TMZ, Louie — who’s a contestant on the show — was practicing his dives on Wednesday when he became a little too bushed to pull himself up the ladder … falling back into the water again and again.

We’re told Louie eventually had to be rescued by Suh and divemaster Greg Louganis — who physically lifted the foundering funnyman to the poolside. Louie then sat coughing up water for several seconds.

So, there’s at least one more person that probably doesn’t have a problem with Suh, despite his bad reputation as a dirty player.

The episode on which Suh will appear will air on Tuesday, March 19 at 8:00 PM on ABC.

Suh recorded two tackles in the Pro Bowl on Sunday.
