Comedian Louie Anderson definitely wasn’t putting on an act (and no one was laughing) when he nearly drowned while on the set of the ABC diving reality series, Splash, which premieres in March. As the STtrib reports, the Minnesota native repeatedly tried to pull himself out of the pool when he finally gave in to exhaustion. That’s when Detroit Lions player Ndamukong Suh rescued him from drowning and teamed up with series coach and Olympic diving champion Greg Louganis to get him out of the pool safely. And while he may have a few bumps and bruises, Anderson is said to be OK.
