Jim Jones can now add hero to his long resume.

Capo and his photographer, Jerry Flete, reflect on the life-saving moment where the rapper had to do emergency CPR on Flete. The incident happened during a recent trip to Florida for a cryptocurrency event for the rapper’s Capo Coin.

“We was just literally just hanging out on a break from work. Just hanging out,” Jerry explained. “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 says his friend Doug, called out for help frantically. “I just saw Flee sitting, just going through something that didn’t seem good like he was choking,” Jim recalled. “He couldn’t breathe, and his eyes was going back in his head, and he was catching a bit of a seizure. I actually didn’t know what was going on. Kind of scared me.”

The Harlem rapper  says he learned CRP at a young age. “I had to take these classes for CPR and all that type 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 all those classes stuck with me all the way to this day because I remember everything vividly they told me to do in certain situations,” Jim said. “I got over there. I just was as frantic and confused as everybody else at first. And then something just jumped in me like, get to it. It gave him life again.”

Thank God Jim was there and able to step in.
