LOS ANGELES — Patrick Dempsey, the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ actor and Lewiston, Maine, native, became a real-life hero last week when he rescued a trapped teenager whose car crashed and flipped outside Dempsey’s Malibu, Calif., home.

The actor came to the scene, reportedly with fire extinguisher and crowbar in hand, to pry the doors open, and pulled 17-year-old Weston Massett from the wreckage. Massett said he asked Dempsey, “Are you famous?,” to which Dempsey replied, “I’m a doctor.”

Neither Massett nor his passenger, Dylan Miller, suffered serious injury.
