(ABC News)–Brad Pitt doesn’t just play a hero on screen; it turns out he’s one in real life too.

On Monday, the star, 52, came to the rescue of a little girl who appeared in danger of being crushed by a crowd of eager fans.

While shooting his upcoming World War II film, “Allied,” in Spain’s Canary Islands, the actor took a break to greet fans. Waving to the crowd, which had become overzealous, he noticed the young girl being pushed up against a fence.

In a video of the incident, Pitt can be seen pointing to the girl before rushing over to help her. Along with two bodyguards, he then lifted her over the fence. He can be seen comforting the girl, rubbing her head and back as medics arrive.

After the situation was resolved, Pitt gave a final wave to the crowd before making a movie star’s exit.
