Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh saved a fellow cast mate from drowning while filming an episode of a new reality show.

While practicing his dives for ABC’s new celebrity diving show Splash on Wednesday, comedian Louie Anderson could not get out of the water due to “sheer exhaustion” and had to be saved.

According to TMZ, Anderson was attempting to climb out of the pool when he became too fatigued and fell back in.

Luckily for Anderson, Suh and Olympian Greg Louganis, jumped in to save him, lifting him out of the pool.

Meanwhile, Suh’s teammates back in Detroit are unhappy with his decision to go on the show.

“We need him on the field and if he gets hurt during the off-season doing wild stunts … it would be bad and it ain’t worth it. He is too valuable to the team,” one of the Lions player’s said.

Another source said, “If he gets a busted ear drum or an infection, it could have serious effects on his off-season training.”

“He’s a big dude … and ‘black’ and ‘pool’ just don’t mix. He’s built for football … not belly flops,” said another anonymous Lions player.

Splash  is set to premier on March 19.
