Clifford “T.I.” Harris has made a name as a rapper and family man with his new reality TV series. But at times his compassion has extended beyond the walls of his home.
October 13th 2010 T.I. was listening to the radio and he heard that a man named Joshua Starks was about to jump off a 22-story skyscraper. Finding himself deeply moved he drove over to Atlanta’s 400 Colony Square building. T.I. asked authorities if he could speak to Joshua about his situation.
T.I. met with police and then recorded a video message that the police then showed to the man on the ledge. On the video, T.I. said, “Nothing is that bad. Nothing in life is worth taking your life. I’m here to help you. Please come down to talk to me.” After watching the video, the man stepped back from the ledge, and later met with T.I. in the building’s lobby, where the two talked for a few minutes before the man was taken to Atlanta’s Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment.
When asked how he did it T.I. replied “The fact of the matter is God put me in a position to help, and I can’t take any credit for that.”
