Life-saver Sean Penn

Sean Penn saved two lives in Haiti yesterday (25.02.10).

The Oscar-winning actor was on a rescue mission in the earthquake hit Caribbean nation when he discovered an orphaned child and a woman badly injured in a collapsed building.

The pair are believed to have been trapped after a small aftershock, and the 49-year-old actor - who runs the Jenkins-Penn Haitian Relief Organization - drove with his 19-year-old daughter Dylan to rescue them.

Sean managed to free the pair before personally driving them to the University of Miami hospital camp in the Haitian capital Port-au-Prince.

The 'Milk' star then waited for both the woman and child to be treated for their injuries before taking them back to his home as they had nowhere else to go.

Sean recently returned to Haiti following a three-week stint helping survivors.

He said: "We have to save Haiti. Relocation is, right now, the primary focus."

He also admitted he may pull out of the 'Three Stooges' movie as he's "not in a very funny state of mind right now".

A number of celebrities have gone to Haiti to help with rescue efforts, including 'Bad Boys' singer Alexandra Burke and Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie.
