Carmen Electra gave a panhandler some cash -- and nearly a heart attack.

Perhaps Carmen felt sorry for the young man, who was sitting on the ice cold concrete on 57th Street in Manhattan as the temperature neared zero degrees.

She certainly sympathized with his coldness -- she was wearing knee-length leggings and a rather thin jacket on the coldest day of the year! Girl, this ain't L.A.! Put on some clothes!
