Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, but this is a look at some famous heroes. Celebrity Good Samaritans have helped people in need. Whether it's pulling someone out of a burning building, saving someone from drowning, helping people on Twitter, or calling the paramedics and waiting with the victim. These famous people certainly know how to save a life. 
 
These life savers aren't doing this for the cameras or the paparazzi. These celebs are just doing what many people would already do in these dicey sorts of situations. In many of these instances, other people should have come to the aide of the victims, but they stayed away. Is there something to a celebrity's personality which makes them want to be a first-responder?
  
Either way, we are very thankful for the heroic deeds that these famous people have done. Celebrities account for a minority of heroes, but the few lives that these people have saved are worth more than any celeb's net worth. Life is important, and these celebs recognize that. Many of us could take a few life saving lessons from these stars. 
Just another very important way that human lives are touched by the power of celebrity.

Surfer Kelly Slater happened to be nearby when a rogue wave swept a mother and her young son off of the Kamehameha Highway in Oahu, Hawaii in January of 2016. When he saw that they were in trouble, he rushed in to save them from the powerful surf. Slater later wrote that it was just good timing. He said he had randomly stopped at that spot and happened to be in the right place at the right time. He also praised the life guards who were on their way to help.
