Cuba Gooding, Jr. saved a man set on fire during a party over the weekend.
PageSix is reporting that the 52-year-old actor came to the rescue of the person, who was identified as the host of the party by a source, accidentally set himself on fire at a “socially distanced Shabbat dinner”.
The event took place at the Bridgehampton home of a tech CEO over the weekend, which Cuba attended with girlfriend Claudine De Niro.
According to the source, the host “inadvertently set himself on fire” and “Cuba jumped into action hero mode and doused him with water in front of frightened guests, who applauded once it was clear the guy was OK.”
A rep for the actor confirmed the report.
“The back of the gentleman’s shirt ignited into flames from a candle that he unknowingly leaned back into while the rabbi was giving the Shabbat prayer.
