‘Modern Family’ Star Julie Bowen Comes to the Rescue of Hiker

Julie Bowen to the rescue!

The Modern Family star came to the rescue of a New Jersey woman who fainted and hit her head during a hike in the Utah wilderness.

The woman, Minnie John, tells NJ.com that she became lightheaded and fell in Arches National Park. When she awoke, she found the actress tending to her.

Julie and her sister Annie Luetkemeyer, a doctor specializing in infectious diseases, were hiking nearby when Minnie fell.

Annie reportedly bandaged John’s nose, while Julie assured the fallen hiker that help was on the way.

Minnie says, “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?’”

The actress took her hair down and shook it out to help the woman recognize her.

Minnie was later treated for a fractured nose and received five stitches.
