Seventy-seven-year-old Jim Walpole of Defiance fell Thursday in Toronto while on a trans-Canadian trip.
Walpole told the Toronto Star that Malkovich, who was appearing at a Toronto theater, applied pressure to slow the bleeding until medics arrived. The injury required 10 stitches.
Ben Quinn, whose family owns a restaurant near the scene, held Walpole’s head. He said by phone Monday that Malkovich “had everything under control” quickly, didn’t want any attention and called Walpole later to check on him.
