Used to be Ustinov, but used to's not good enough for me.

Is the story Lauren Christy tells about saving Peter Ustinov's life true?
I've been wondering this for a dozen years or more. In 'The Night I Saved Peter Ustinov' (lyrics are here
, about 3/4 of the way down the page), Lauren Christy essentially claims to have saved Ustinov from jumping to his death from St. Paul's bridge.
Is the story true? Did Ustinov try to commit suicide and did Lauren Christy really save him, or is this just a poetic device to give her a chance to sing about Billy Budd?
