Johnny Depp’s attorney Camille Vasquez helped a passenger during a medical emergency aboard her flight from Los Angeles to New York City this week.

A male passenger in his 70s collapsed as he walked past Vasquez and her bodyguard on the American Airlines flight and reportedly hit his head, according to TMZ. When flight attendants called out for help, sources told the outlet that Camille and her protection leapt out of their seats to tend to the man.

Her bodyguard reportedly removed his Apple watch so he could monitor the man’s heart rate while Vasquez got in touch with her brother-in-law, who is a doctor, and was guided through steps to ensure the man wasn’t suffering a brain bleed or heart attack, the outlet continued. A surgeon aboard the flight came forward and took over the scene, TMZ noted.

One of the flight attendants called Vasquez a “wonder woman,” giving her a bottle of Merlot and champagne, TMZ continued. A representative for American Airlines confirmed the authenticity of the report to TMZ. (RELATED: Joe Rogan Shreds Amber Heard’s Legal Team, Has One Wish For Johnny Depp)
