NY News: Demi Moore Twitter Helps Save Life

Add Life Saving Tool to the growing number of uses for Twitter.

Demi Moore and her score of Twitter followers Friday helped thwart a possible suicide attempt by a distraught California woman.

"Getting a knife, a big one that is sharp. Going to cut my arm down the whole arm so it doesn't waste time," said the message sent to Moore by a user of the social networking site.

"Hope you are joking," wrote back Moore.

"Gbye...gonna kill myself now," the woman responded.

A San Jose police spokesman said the department had received a number of calls from Twitter users about the suicide threat and sent officers to the 48-year-old woman's home.

Moore's husband, Ashton Kutcher, Twitted his congratulations.

"Wifey reported a suicide attempt based on a...tweet she got and saved someones life. The woman is in the hospital now."
About 383,500 people follow Moore's Tweets.
