Actress Alyssa Milano had quite the scare Tuesday morning. While riding in a car with her uncle, the two got into a car accident. However, Milano was quick to step into action.
The two were in an SUV as they drove down a highway in Los Angeles when Milano’s uncle lost consciousness, according to People. Authorities believe the man could have suffered a possible heart attack. The scary moment continued as their car shifted into another lane, hitting an SUV.
After the vehicles came to a stop, Milano performed CPR on her uncle until emergency services arrived. With the help of some good citizens nearby, local police and an ambulance were called to the scene.
When LAPD units arrived, they took over CPR on Milano’s 63-year-old uncle, along with the L.A. Fire Department. The man was then taken by ambulance to the UCLA Westwood Hospital. However, his status remains unknown.
While the actress has not addressed the incident publicly, she did tweet a small message on her Twitter page.
“We should all take every opportunity we have to protect the people we love,” Milano said in the tweet. “Get vaccinated. Wear masks. Lock up your guns. Learn CPR. Small, common-sense actions.”
“It’s not hard to take care of each other, but it is important,” she added.
Alyssa Milano Hints at Congress Run
The 48-year-old actress has hinted she may run for Congress in recent months. Milano shared that she could potentially run in 2024 in California’s 4th District for the House of Representatives. She would be up against Rep. Tom McClintock (R).
A known activist and outspoken democrat, Milano has said she feels current president Joe Biden has done a good job with the presidency, but there’s “a lot left to do.”
The former “Charmed” and “Fear” actress said politics have been a part of her 10-year plan. She’s passionate about expanding gun violence laws and adding supreme court justices.
Her plans in the meantime are to continue community outreach and listen to the people in the district about what changes need to be made to make the country better overall.
“It’s going to take someone with, I think, name recognition and deep pockets to be able to run against McClintock, and so I’m considering it,” she said. “I’m basically gathering information right now, speaking to different consultants, speaking to the community.”
