What an unbelievably brave and compassionate thing to do.
Rapper T.I. was in Atlanta, on his way to shoot a music video yesterday, when he heard that a young man was threatening to jump to his death from the roof of a 22-story building, so he rushed to the scene and helped authorities get him down!
Officer James Polite explains:
"He came to the scene and offered to talk to him, we told the young man that, and he came down. He didn’t have to stop. He could’ve kept on going about his business. We’re happy it ended the way it did, and we thank him."
The rapper reportedly convinced the man to come down by filming a quick video message and then sending it up to him!
“Something in me just said, ‘man you gotta try and help. You gotta do whatever you can.' "
And we think everyone is glad that you did stop!
A man still has his life because of it!
