WENN 1 / 4

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis called emergency services in a panic on Tuesday night following a friend's bad reaction to a prescription drug, according to TMZ.

The unidentified pal had fallen ill after allegedly drinking alcohol shortly after taking the medication, and the star decided to drive her to a hospital to seek help from doctors.

However, the situation reportedly took a turn for the worse when the woman passed out in the backseat of Curtis' car and the actress promptly called for an ambulance.

Paramedics arrived on the scene in Venice, Calif., and transported Curtis' friend to a nearby medical center, where she was treated and subsequently released.
