LAPD Saves Kurtis Blow After Suffering Heart Attack At Bus Stop (Video)

Hip Hop nearly lost another pioneer but it was the LAPD who stepped in and saved his life.

According to ABC 7 News in Los Angeles, Kurtis Blow aka Kurtis Walker was at a Woodland Hills bus stop arguing with his son when he suffered a heart attack. Police, who initially believed they were dispatched to respond to a robbery call, saw Walker collapse. After five minutes of performing CPR on Walker, paramedics arrived to transport him to the hospital.

Recovering at a local hospital, Walker issued the following statement:

“The police saved my life, a Black man. In this day and age, people need to hear that!” he said in a statement.

“They got there so fast. If they got there any later, I would have died. I want to thank the officers from the bottom of my heart, no pun intended,” he said.

Score one of the LAPD and the Culture doesn’t have to mourn another hero.
