West Coast rapper Game has provided some more context after recent reports surfaced which claimed he saved a man’s life by calling local police.
The Black Wall Street leader admitted he recently called 9-1-1 for the first time in his entire life after discovering an injured bicyclist.
“I just was driving home from the studio at like five o’clock in the morning two nights ago and there was a cyclist who got hit by a car and he was laying out there, I thought he was dead ’cause he wasn’t moving, he wasn’t responsive. So I ended up calling 9-1-1, first time I called 9-1-1 in my life. But you know, I had to do it. I called 9-1-1 they came, 10-15 minutes, and if I hadn’t done it, he probably would have died.” (VIBE TV)
Reports of Game’s heroics hit the Internet in early September.
The Game snapped into hero mode earlier this week … possibly saving the life of a man who badly injured himself in a bicycle crash on an L.A. street. TMZ has learned … Game was driving home from his studio early Wednesday morning when he noticed a man who was lying face down in the street … with his bike on top of his body. Game tells us … he pulled over to see if he could help … and when he noticed the man was unresponsive, he immediately called 911. (TMZ)
The former G-Unit member also delved into what motivated him to become a local hero.
“I couldn’t just keep driving seeing a man in pain with his head on the ground.”Game waited with the man until paramedics arrived to the scene … and says the man was transported to a nearby hospital. Cops tell us the man is alive and is currently recovering from his injuries. Police also confirm that Game was the person who made the first 911 call. Game tells us, “If that was me in that situation, I’d want someone to do the same thing.” (TMZ)
Last March, the rapper made headlines after helping a concertgoer in California.
Rapper/MC The Game is a dag gone angel these days. Who knew?! Just 4 months after stopping a concert to fight a guy in the crowd, he stopped a concert to SAVE someone (and TMZ has the footage). It all went down on March 18th — The Game was in the middle of his performance at The Observatory in Santa Ana, CA … when a concertgoer passed out in the crowd. Game immediately jumped into action — slamming the brakes on the show to make sure the kid was okay. The footage is pretty intense — the kid comes to for a quick moment … asking for water … then falls limp AGAIN, passing out cold for the second time. Several other concertgoers rushed to the guy’s aid — but before long, he had regained consciousness again … this time for good … and the show went on. (Eur Web)
