Rain Man star Hoffman was taking a walk - and dashed to help."I have no memory of what happened. The paramedics told me I had been saved by Dustin Hoffman. It's unbelievable," he said.The actor later told paramedics Dempster had been frothing at the mouth and staggering. The jogger collapsed, smashing his face on the ground. (ANI)
