Actress Demi Moore is apparently part of an online chain of posts that warned Florida authorities that a young man might be trying to commit suicide.
Her Twitter account, mrskutcher, was among those responding to a message from a young man threatening to hang himself early Friday in Casselberry, north of Orlando. Moore — with 2.5 million followers — and husband Ashton Kutcher are both active on the social network.
The Seminole County Sheriff’s Office said authorities got two calls from the West Coast reporting the suicide threat on Twitter. Lt. Sonia Pisano said deputies went to a home and took an uninjured juvenile male to a hospital. She said she could not provide more specifics.
Calls to an agent for Moore went unanswered.
