According to a person on scene, a man between the age of 60 and 70 toppled over in the Delta terminal at around 11 PM last night.

We're told Hal rushed to the man's aid and began performing mouth-to-mouth, while a woman performed chest compressions. Medical aid showed up shortly after and the man was taken away.

Hal Tweeted after the incident, saying, "Just did CPR for the 3rd time in my life. What a night ... When they took him away he was breathing on his own ... Hope he makes it."

Hal later added, "Everybody NEEDS to take a CPR class. Out of 200 people only 2 of us new [sic] CPR ... okay enough preaching ... I need a nap."

So the man did mouth-to-mouth on the male victim while the woman did the physically harder job of chest compressions. Seems Queer As Folk left an indelible impression.

But wait Hal, it's disgusting and repulsive to lock lips with another man. At least you made sure you said so during every interview you did during the entire run of Queer As Folk.
