While practicing his dives for the celebrity diving show, Splash, comedian Louie Anderson nearly drowned. Thank goodness co-star, NFL star Ndamukong Suh, was there!

Suh and divemaster Greg Louganis went into the pool, robes and all, to pull out the floundering Anderson, who choked up water for several minutes afterward. In case you're not familiar with Louie, who is also a former host of Family Feud, he's not a small man.

If you want to see some photos of the incident, TMZ has them!
