(NEW York) -- Grammy winning rapper T.I. helped police talk a man out of jumping to his death from a 22-story building in Atlanta. "He came to the scene and offered to talk to him, we told the young man that, and he came down," Officer James Polite with Atlanta police told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The man was taken to a hospital and police say he will face no charges.
T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris, was in Atlanta Thursday for a video shoot. He said when he heard about the man threatening suicide, something in him told him to do whatever he could to help. Police credit the rapper with helping them avert a potentially devastating situation.
