BEVERLY HILLS Calif – Angela Bassett once resort

first_img BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – Angela Bassett once resorted to dialing 911 for help when she had trouble with a fireplace at home. Aisha Hinds needed help for a life-threatening emergency as a teenager.The actresses co-star on Fox’s “9-1-1” series about the pressurized world of police, firefighters and dispatchers who are thrust into a variety of high-stress situations.Bassett told a TV critics meeting on Thursday that she once called for help when a fire she and a friend started got out of hand. It wouldn’t extinguish after being doused with water and she had trouble using a spatula to toss the burning log outside.“I’m a Florida girl, so fireplaces aren’t usually a thing,” she said.Much to Bassett’s relief, firefighters in full gear arrived and took care of it.“They were very handsome,” she said, smiling.Hinds got mistakenly shot in the back as a 16-year-old walking home from school in New York by a suspect chasing another man.“It didn’t even register that I had been shot,” she said. “It felt kind of like a stiletto, like a really sharp stiletto just piercing, and really, really hot.”The bullet grazed her aorta and she ended up losing a kidney.Both men ended up dying within a couple years of the incident.“So here I am, the lone survivor of that entire experience,” Hinds said. “Truly, truly I have to give credit to the very fast response of 911 in my neighbourhood.” by Beth Harris, The Associated Press Posted Aug 2, 2018 7:42 pm PDT Last Updated Aug 2, 2018 at 8:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Calling 911: Actresses Bassett, Hinds helped by responderscenter_img Ryan Guzman, from back row left, Rockmond Dunbar, Kenneth Choi, Aisha Hinds, Oliver Stark, and from front row left, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Peter Krause, actress/co-executive producer Angela Bassett, co-creator/executive producer/writer Tim Minear and executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall participate in the “9-1-1” panel during the Fox Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour at The Beverly Hilton hotel on Thursday, Aug. 2, 2018, in Beverly Hills, Calif.
