According to The Plymouth Herald, the Chocolate singer alerted a fan that she had forgotten to apply the handbrake on her car before the event.
Karen Gokoglu and her daughter Yasmin - a fan of Healy's band - had been driving around the site and "leapt" out the car when spotting the band, leaving their pet pooch behind as her vehicle started to roll down the hill.
Mrs. Gokoglu later commented to the paper: "It could have really been an MTV crash! I had no idea the handbrake wasn’t on properly. I just thought ‘Quick, let me get some photos’ and wasn’t thinking.
“I managed to jump in it just before it hit the pavement and the wall. Our dog Poppy nearly went with the car. It could have been disastrous especially if the car had travelled all the way down the hill."
Describing Healy, she said: “He was a really nice guy, really friendly and he came to my rescue.”Speaking of the incident, Matt later explained to Digital Spy: "She jumped out of the car in excitement and left the handbrake off so I ran towards her alerting her of the problem.
"She jumped back inside and I kind of calmed the dog slightly by touching it on its head and then did a picture with her daughter."
Fellow performer Example later interrupted the website's chat with Matt, and stated: "I heard you saved someone's life."
