Sean Penn --

Lifesaving Hero in Haiti

2/26/2010 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sean Penn is personally responsible for saving two lives Thursday during a rescue mission in Haiti -- a woman and an orphan child badly injured in the rubble of a collapsed building ... TMZ has learned.

Haiti

Penn -- who runs the Jenkins-Penn Haitian Relief Organization -- drove an hour and a half with his daughter Dylan to rescue a woman and child who were trapped in rubble outside Port-au-Prince, possibly from an aftershock.

An eyewitness tells TMZ Penn helped extricate the woman, who suffered leg injuries, and the child, who suffered head injuries. Penn drove them in his truck to the University of Miami hospital camp in Port-au-Prince.

We're told Penn waited while the woman and child were treated for their injuries and then took them back to his place.

The woman and the child have nowhere to go, and Penn won't leave them until they have a safe place to go.

keven: in you hierarchy of zealotry, where do you put firefighters, emergency room docs, nurses, private pilots, and the U.S,.Navy - all of whom served, without pay or fame, gave of their knowledge, skills, and experience, to volunteer to save lives after the earthquake in Haiti?

Are these folks ALL zealots in the Book of Keven? If so, why pray tell?

FYI: Sean penn's a narcissistic, self-promoting, self-indulgent, self-important, hack of an actor and politically screwed-up person. He'd bury his nose up any dictators bum for a percentage or media coverage. If he's TRULY doing anything for the good of someone other than himself, let him keep it to himself. Tooting one's own horn (even through other people) is self-aggrandizing, at best. For good reason, most will doubt the motives of anything this guy ever does or says. Hanoi Jane worked the PR machine, too.

Typical vid gamer twadle from a free range moron whose incapable of expressing his disagreement or engaging in substantive, rational and coherent criticism.

Man, ain't that the truth. The rest of the time he's got it in his own mouth, fighting for dominance with his foot.

Penn's always been his own best fan. He still thinks he can act, He foolishly thinks he's respected.

Wonder why he wasn't kicking this photographer? Just goes to show you he's like Tiger Woods and its all about ME ME ME. The only thing he is in my eyes is pollution.
