Demi Moore and Nia Vardalos Restrain Twitter Blogger From Committing Suicide


After being aware that a Twitter blogger was about to hang himself, the two actresses helped the man to stop doing the suicidal deed by sending Florida authorities to his place.

Actresses Demi Moore and Nia Vardalos have helped Florida authorities stage an intervention to save an allegedly suicidal man after they responded to his worrying message on social networking site Twitter. The stars were among hundreds of people who replied to a post from a young man who threatened to hang himself in Casselberry, near Orlando in the early hours of Friday, March 19.

Moore appealed to the youngster with the username 'jeremyllynch' by writing, "R U rlly (really) asking 4 (for) help?", after he posted a note that read, "i'm going 2 (to) send a live feed of me hanging myself. No 1 (one) cares if I die or not." Vardalos also heard about the tragic message and phoned a suicide hotline for advice before being connected to Florida police, leading them to the man's home.

Updating fans about the situation, the "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" actress wrote on her Twitter page, "I gave his name+city. They went to home, helped him." Lieutenant Sonia Pisano from the Seminole County Sheriff's Office confirmed an uninjured juvenile male had been taken to hospital by the cops, although she refused to reveal any further details.

Moore later thanked her followers for aiding the intervention. She wrote, "Thank you twitterverse for your help supporting someone in pain last night." It's the second time Moore has used her internet prowess on the social networking site to save a troubled soul after sparking a similar intervention by California police in April 2009.
