Paris Hilton's Oompa aid

Paris Hilton rushed to the aid of an injured 'Oompa-Loompa' at the weekend.The hotel heiress was partying at Miami's Cameo nightclub with on/off boyfriend Stavros Niarchos when midget Robin Sherwood, who performs as the orange-faced 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' character, suffered severe cuts to his leg when fans rushed the stage in the early hours of Saturday morning (08.12.07).Lawyer Mike Heller said: "I was with Paris. Paris stayed back at the event when she heard that he was injured, to make sure he was OK. She was very concerned with his health. She didn't leave until she knew that he was OK."A fellow clubber added to People magazine: "Paris Hilton stayed with him until an ambulance came to take care of him. Paris was great, she was there until he was turned over to the medical technicians."Sherwood was on stage with two other 'Oompa-Loompas' as part of a performance of Jeff Beacher's 'Madhouse' when the incident took place.Paris, 26, is a close friend of Sherwood's and visited him during rehearsals earlier in the day.The novelty act performer is in dire need of a kidney transplant and Paris, her sister Nicky Hilton and her boyfriend David Katzenberg have supported a foundation to help him get the operation.Before attending the club, the hotel heiress was seen shopping at Miami's Atrium boutique in South Beach, where she spent $20,000 on clothes in just 30 minutes.A source said: "Paris bought about 10 dresses, six pairs of jeans and 30 tops without trying anything on!"
