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.


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.

He is still an arrogant America-hating Ahole. Could we leave him there under the rubble?

Hey you throwbacks, he did help Americans, maybe you all forget Katrina? I hate alot of Americans too, so many here and on CNN who post foolish crap, have no sense of compassion for anyone other than those on their team or with their beliefs. Idiots who want to support the war but at the same time talk about policies akin to freaking Iran. He earned his money so like you all love to say about so many other actors, let him spend it the way he wants. Really funny that anyone spending 'their' money to help others anywhere in the world so infuriates the ignorant masses.

He does rage against the machine a bit and seems to be a real Ahole. He did actually do something in Katrina getting a boat and rescuing people and bringing to the media stunning footage that lit a fire under the govts arse. Here he seems to be doing more of his donate money or get in there and help or stfu style. He is one to get in there and he has the money to help so who gives a crap from where it comes if it saving peoples lives.

HE might have done some douchebag things, but let's recognize a good action when there is one. Great job Penn, I'm happy he helped save that woman and her child. If my mom lost me, she'd go ballistic! And btw, he's been in haiti for about a month now while noone knew. GREAT JOB!

thats nice, hero he is. those people need him he should stay awhile. because the man here that got his leg hurt is going to have to be a burden to his relatives or friends probably or struggle hisself. that camera man is inadequate to say the least ignore him. thumbs down on both of you.
