The first time
The first known instance of T.I. saving a suicidal man’s life happened in 2010, when T.I. heard that a man nearby was getting ready to jump off a building rooftop in Atlanta. T.I. met with police and “recorded a video message that the police then showed to the man on the ledge”, according to Rolling Stone.
The man came off the ledge and met T.I. in the building’s lobby where T.I. got a few minutes to talk to the man in person.

The second time
Scott Stapp, the lead singer of the band Creed, once jumped off the balcony of his hotel room after a drug binge and lack of sleep.
The fall caused serious injuries, and it was T.I. nearby that happened to show up just in time to save his life. Amazingly, T.I. and Scott Stapp had actually met years before, when they worked together on a soundtrack.
“He immediately took care of the situation and saved my life.”
