Demi Moore's Twitter Stops Possible Suicide

3/19/2010 2:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Demi Moore's Twitter exchange with a suicidal 18-year-old may have helped save his life this morning ... but she's not the only actress who stepped up to help the guy out.

Demi Moore Twitter

Turns out Nia Vardalos from "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" called a suicide prevention center in Los Angeles after seeing Demi's grim exchange with the guy -- who was threatening to hang himself in a tree outside of his Florida home.

TMZ has obtained the phone call made between the suicide prevention center and Florida authorities during which Nia is patched in and tells cops everything she knows about the guy from the information on his Twitter account.

Cops were actually able to locate the guy using Nia's info -- and according to the police report, the guy was "sitting at his computer desk crying" when they found him.

Cops say the guy -- who admitted to needing medical help -- was placed under protective custody.

Wow you are suicidal and you are leaving tweets to Demi Moore? Did he not have friends? How did Demi save him exactly? By saying "Are you kidding?" She's incredible! She should have been in my town because they found a guy hanging from a tree this morning. Maybe she could have worked a miracle for him too. "Are you kidding?"

Wish Demi would have figured it out. But good for Nia for being in the right place. I love her. She adopted from the Calif Foster System, which is awesome as she could have gone anywhere in the world, I am sure, to get a child.

My, she seems to have a penchant for preventing suicides via Twitter. Sounds like so much BS to me. Once, maybe. Twice, not very damn likely.

Why isn't the headline about Nia Vardalos instead of Demi Moore?

Good on the internet for finally stopping a suicide for once. Props to demi. That's the best thing I've heard today. It's nice when celebrities actually care. I heard there's a website http://www.dirtyphonebook.com where people are posting anonymous comments about people and thats going to increase the suicide rate I bet.

I'm more curious as to how the authorities found the guy. A kid sharing private information with Demi or he was tracked down some other way. Makes you think about Twitter's data collecting?

Dimi and Nia both rate a well done here. This is one young feller, who, when he gets straightend out and a bit more mature, will come to thank God that there were two very nice ladies out there who cared.

This is my neighbor, and we are all very grateful he was saved. The cooperation and caring starting with Moore and others, from one agency to the next, from CA to FL, stopped a very possible tragic end result.
