T.I. talks down a suicidal jumper

tiImage Credit: Moises De Pena/WireImage.comHe can do whatever he likes, and apparently what he likes to do is save lives. In the best celebrity heroism story since Werner Herzog pulled a pre-beard Joaquin Phoenix out of a car wreck, hip-hop star T.I. convinced a suicidal man not to jump from a 22-story building in Atlanta on Wednesday, the AP reports. The rapper had heard about the situation on the radio and drove over to see if he could help, offering to speak with the potential jumper if he would come down. “I told him it ain’t that bad. It’ll get better, to put the time and effort into making it better,” T.I. told the AP. “I just reminded him … that I know. It looks bad right now, but it can turn around.” This comes only two days before T.I. is scheduled to appear in court for a parole hearing stemming from a drug arrest earlier this year.

    • Hmmm…

      Very true. Although I hope it’s not, because I think that’s very awesome of him.

      Feel sorry for people of Chicago, etc., would have helepd the economy and all that, and SA was overdue for an Olympics, so I’m happy for them even if I’m not so sure Rio has the infrastructure to put on a decent games. But part of me is SO GLAD Chicago didn’t get it. We would have had 2 solid weeks of NON-STOP Obamamania. What is Michell and the kids wearing today? What sporting venues are on for today? What restaurant did they visit and what did they have to eat? Ad nauseam. Would have been hard to take.

    That is interesting how that happen were he convinced a suicidal man to walk away from killing himself and at the same time he is in drug trouble. He is living an interesting life for saving a man’s life. God bless him in all his ways to make him fast and accurate in his doings.
