T.I. Saves A Man From Suicide
T.I. was on his way to a video shoot driving in his car back in 2010 when he heard a man was threatening to jump off the top of Atlanta’s 400 Colony Square Building on radio station V-103.
Listening to the situation unfold, Tip called into the station asking radio presenter Ryan Cameron if he could help. The rapper drove to the scene which was not too far from him and told the authorities he wanted to assist. An officer at the scene recorded a video message from T.I. which was handed to the negotiator speaking to the man. The man stepped away from the ledge after seeing the message which, according to the rapper said that he was looking forward to meeting him and “no matter what’s going on in life now, it gets better”.
The rapper felt compelled to help, and no doubt was key in saving this man from a premature death. This wasn’t T.I’s only rescue. Two years later he also acted fast when he found Scott Stapp, lead singer of US rock band Creed on the floor after jumping off a balcony, and just recently he helped rescue a woman from a car crash.
