A rapper from the U.K. is being praised after talking a man out of taking his own life.
Dappy, a 34-year-old rapper, was shooting a music video near London’s Tower Bridge when he saw police cars and ambulances in the area. First responders were trying to save a 27-year-old who was about to jump off the bridge.
The bridge was closed off, and Dappy was told by police to leave the area. That is, until the 27-year-old saw Dappy walking away.
He shouted the rapper’s name, and Dappy managed to convince police to let him speak with the young man.

Imani Campbell, Dappy’s girlfriend, later posted on Instagram about the interaction.
She captioned it “I truly believe the universe sent us to that bridge so Daps could save this young man’s life. As soon as he recognized Daps his whole demeanour changed, we saw hope appear in his eyes.”
She’s confirmed that the man’s life has been saved and that he and his family reached out to Dappy, saying he is alive and well.
