The big man's girlfriend, Omarosa Stallworth, initially saved the former bodyguard's life by performing CPR after finding him in a state of cardiac arrest early on Friday morning - and was able to resuscitate him.

The 54 year old was then taken to a nearby hospital and admitted to the Intensive Care Unit, reports TMZ.com.

Sources tell the website that Duncan's heart rate is now stable and doctors are performing tests.
