While at a bus stop in Los Angeles, hip hop pioneer Kurtis Blow, real name Kurtis Walker was in an argument with his son when police arrived to the scene to diffuse the situation after receiving an initial robbery call. Kurtis Blow collapsed and went into cardiac arrest. The officers thought nothing of it and quickly performed CPR and kept Blow’s head elevated while they waited for paramedics.

Blow was extremely grateful and thanked the officiers for saving his life, a black man’s life. He went on to mention how in this day and age people need to hear that positive act of officers instead of always hearing the negative.

We wish Kurtis a speedy recovery!
