Demi Moore used her Twitter account to save the life of a suicidal woman.

A woman sent the actress a message on the social networking site Friday that said: “Getting a knife, a big one that is sharp. Going to cut my arm down the whole arm so it doesn’t waste time.”In response, Demi re-posted her message on her own Twitter page, adding, “Hope you are joking.”

She told her followers in the post that she just couldn’t let the message go unnoticed.

“Everyone I was very torn about responding or retweeting that woman’s post but felt uncomfortable just letting it go,” Moore tweeted.

Some of the 380,000 followers of Moore (her Twitter name is mrskutcher, after her husband Ashton Kutcher) responded to her post, saying that they had reached out to police.

“The twitterverse is on the case just called silicon valley pd to report this woman many others had called. fingers crossed,” one user wrote in a post.

A rep for the San Jose Police Department said they “received several phone calls” about the woman starting at 3 a.m. on Friday, Access Hollywood reports. Police were able to locate the woman, who had not yet hurt herself.

Moore and Kutcher were both thankful when they found out the woman was safe.

Kutcher tweeted: “Wifey reported a suicide attempt based on a at reply tweet she got and saved someones life. The woman is in the hospital now.”

Moore also thanked her followers for their help.

“Thanks everyone for reaching out to the San Jose PD i am told they are aware and no need to call anymore. I do not know this woman,” she wrote. “I am inspired by the enormous response of humanity here and thank you…”

She added most recently: “Today was a prime example of the power of collective consciousness and our incredible ability to create change when we come together!”
