Shout out to Jim Jones for being at the right place, at the right time!

Harlem’s very own Dipset rapper Jim Jones is being praised for his heroic behavior as he saved his friend and photographer, Jerry Flete’s life after he collapsed!

According to reports from  XXL , the incident took place while the two were on a business trip in Florida at a cryptocurrency event for the rapper’s Capo Coin.

Both Jim and Jerry interviewed with Inside Edition Digital’s  host Stephanie Officer to discuss the details of the life threatening incident.

We were literally just hanging out on a break from work. Just hanging out” Jerry recalls. “It just happened so fast. Basically, I woke up, Jim giving me chest compressions and telling me, WAKE UP, WAKE UP. He basically saved my life. I’m here today because of Jim.” 

Jim’s explains on his end of the story that he wasn’t even close to Jerry when the situation occurred. He was alerted by his friend when the situation happened. “I just saw Flee sitting, just going through something that didn’t seem good like he was choking. He couldn’t breathe, and his eyes were going back in his head, and he was catching a bit of a seizure. I didn’t know what was going on. Kind of scared me.”

Jim continues by saying he immediately acted and performed CPR. “When I was younger, I had to take these classes for CPR and all types of things for my little sister who has a heart condition. They needed the whole family to take these special classes before she came home when she was a baby. I think those classes stuck with me all the way to this day because I remember everything vividly, they told me to do in certain situations. I got over there. I just was frantic and confused as everybody else at first. And then something just jumped in me like, get to it. It gave him life again!”
