Demi Moore Saves a Life by Tweeting

Demi Moore really loves her Twitter account. But besides using it for photos and updates, Demi is saving lives! According to E!, the actress helped prevent a suicide last night!

According to the report, a young man from Florida tweeted about possibly taking his own life last night, and Demi was quick to respond. She wrote him, "R U rlly asking 4 help?" The man proceeded to send several more messages to the actress.

It’s not confirmed whether Demi called the police or not, but the Seminole County Sheriff's Office tells the Orlando Sentinel that it received two calls from the West Coast about the suicide threat.

And Demi isn’t the only person who took notice. Actress Nia Vardalos also wrote to the young man, "Please call 1 800 SUICIDE . I'm on the phone with them right now. They are waiting to talk to you.”

And it all paid off! Nia later updated her followers with the good news: "Just spoke to FL police again, they're with [him] now. He is ok, it's not a hoax. Thank u all for sending love," she said. "I called suicide line, connected to FL police, I gave his name+city. They went to home, helped him."

Lt. Sonia Pisano told the Sentinel that deputies went to a home and escorted an uninjured juvenile male to the hospital. That’s incredible! It goes to show that people are listening, and all you need to do is ask for help!
