Sandra Bullock to the rescue!
While filming an outdoor scene for her newest film Our Brand Is Crisis in Louisiana, the Gravity star got to play a real-life superhero when one of the extras on set fainted from an apparent heat stroke.
TMZ first reported the incident that took place on Sunday, October 26. Apparently, the extras were told to wear cold-weather clothing, which included heavy winter jackets, and with the temperatures reaching the high 80s in New Orleans the extra simply overheated.
Luckily, the Oscar-winning actress was there to lend a helping hand until the ambulance arrived. Bullock took the time to sit with the woman in a shady area and proceeded to fan her and provide her with water while they waited.

Billy Bob Thornton, Sandra’s co-star, was reportedly also on set, but was mostly watching as the incident took place.
Filming was halted on Monday, but the cast and crew returned to filming on Tuesday, October 29. Currently, there are no updates on the woman’s condition.

Our Brand is Crisis is being produced by Bullock’s Gravity co-star George Clooney and is being directed by David Gordon Green, who also directed Eastbound & Down and Pineapple Express.
The film is expected to debut in theaters in 2016.
