Adam Sandler STOPS stand-up show to call attention to audience member with medical emergency then helps guide medics to the man in distress
Adam Sandler stopped a stand-up show in San Jose, California on Wednesday evening to come to the assistance of an audience member in crisis.
When someone in the crowd cried out ‘Medical emergency!’ Adam paused his set in order to try and help get the fan to safety.
In footage that has surfaced from the incident, some of the houselights appeared to go up as medics arrived on the scene with a gurney.
The 57-year-old comedy star then helped direct the medics to the man in distress, who was successfully retrieved from the crowd.
Insiders indicated to TMZ that the audience member is thought to have been suffering from dehydration but has now recovered.

Apparently the pause on Adam’s performance, which took place and San Jose’s massive SAP Center, lasted approximately 10 minutes.
The show was part of the beloved comedian’s I Missed You Tour, which started last Tuesday in Vancouver and will wrap in in Denver in December.
At the moment, he also has a couple of movies in the pipeline, including a romantic dramedy called Spaceman that stars him as an astronaut.
With a cast of heavy hitters including Carey Mulligan, Paul Dano and The Big Bang Theory alum Kunal Nayyar, the film is due out on Netflix next year.
His other upcoming movie, which still has an undisclosed title, is his reunion with the Safdie brothers, the duo behind his acclaimed 2019 crime drama Uncut Gems.
On the personal front, Adam this June celebrated his 20th wedding anniversary with his wife Jackie, whom he met when she played a waitress in his 1999 film Big Daddy.
‘Nobody wants to hear about Adam Sandler’s secret to marriage,’ he quipped to AARP magazine during a cover interview last year: ‘but I guess here’s the secret: Jackie and I like spending time with each other.’
HE added: ‘We try to make each other laugh, try to listen, try to include each other, try to support each other. We try our best – that’s all. And we don’t ever think of not being together. We always talk about our future together.’

One of the preoccupations of their life together is bringing up their teenage daughters, 17-year-old Sadie and 14-year-old Sunny.
‘My wife and I go to sleep talking about the girls. They have so much ahead, and I feel nervous for them, excited for them. As a parent, you just want to make sure your kids are OK when it’s time for them to take off,’ he reflected.
‘But teenagers are complicated. They’d rather spend time with friends than sitting at home with us all the time,’ the Happy Gilmore star acknowledged.
‘They make fun of me if I do something idiotic with my phone. They’ll say: “Here, gimme the phone. You do it like this.” Usually, I’ll just ignore it and keep doing it wrong, because it gives them a reason to talk to me.’
