Former Playboy model Victoria Valentino didn’t think twice after seeing a gunshot victim lying in her street … rushing to action and playing nurse until paramedics arrived.
Victoria tells TMZ … she was sitting in her Altadena, CA home Sunday afternoon when she heard what sounded like a bunch of quick firecrackers — cops say it was a shooting — and went outside to discover a neighbor down on the ground.
VV says the man had gunshot wounds, including one in his shoulder, and he was turning gray and going into shock … so she used her experience as a retired hospice and respiratory nurse, raising his leg to keep blood flowing to the heart and brain.
Victoria, the September 1963 Playmate and a Bill Cosby rape accuser and survivor, says the gunshot victim’s wife was by his side too … and they did what they could to keep him calm until paramedics arrived and took over. She says it’s just what nurses do.
Sounds like Victoria was a hero … cops say the victim was transported to a hospital and is expected to survive.
