Modern Family actress Julie Bowen recently grabbed headlines by coming to the rescue of a woman named Minnie John. During a hike, the New Jersey resident fainted and hit her head in the Utah wilderness. However, she never expected that a celebrity would come to her rescue.

The minor incident occured in Arches National Park. When the woman came back to her senses, she was surprised to see Julie Bowen in front of her. In an interview with NJ.com, Minnie said that she bent forward into her knees and was holding her head.

The 51-year-old actress was hiking with her sister, Annie Luetkemeyer, who is a doctor specializing in infectious diseases. Minnie woke up and saw two women tending to her. Luetkemeyer bandaged the woman’s nose and Julie Bowen told her that help was on the way. John said,

“I kept hearing Julie talking and directing other people, telling me I was going to be okay. My eyes are focusing on Julie and I kept saying 'Are you sure I don’t know you?’”

Minnie was treated for a fractured nose and received five stitches. She thanked Julie Bowen and Annie Luetkemeyer for their help and care.
