Mariska Hargitay and Christopher Meloni teamed up for a special reason Saturday.

Mariska, 59, who gave a Law & Order: SVU fan the thrill of a lifetime when they bumped into each other on the same flight, and Christopher, 62, did their part to honor some real life heroes on International Firefighters Day in New York. 

The two, who have been partners in solving crimes on TV for more than 20 years both share photos of their training with the Leary Firefighter Foundation founded by their friend and former Law & Order: Organized Crime co-star Denis Leary, 65.

'Had the most epic day with @learyfirefighters. Thank you denisleary for inviting me to join! It was an honor, the actress wrote.

Kathy Najimi posted, 'You are incredible my friend,' and Debra Messing followed with 'Amazing.'

Many fans were amazed the Emmy winner was back in action so soon after getting a clean bill of health from her doctor. 

Mariska was off her feet for a while after fracturing her ankle in three places.

'So…this happened' Christopher wrote, sharing photos of himself and Mariska along with snaps of actors Steve Buscemi, Billy Crudup, Robert Burke, Adam Ferrara and MSNBC anchor Brian Williams who turned up as well.
