Pals Dustin Hoffman and Jason Biggs turned into heroes in Los Angeles recently, when they interrupted a lunch to help a female cyclist who was hit by a car.

The pair, who were dining in Brentwood, California, watched in horror as the cyclist was knocked off her bike.

Whoopi Goldberg's daughter ALEX MARTIN was among the stunned diners who then watched Hoffman and Biggs leap into action.

She says, "Dustin immediately dialled 911 while running over to the scene of the accident. Jason checked to make sure the girl was OK."
