Jim Jones Reflects On Saving His Photographers Life By Giving CPR, Says He Learned At 12 Years Old Due To His Sisters Heart Condition
Jim Jones is urging his fans to get CPR trained! During a recent interview on The Breakfast Club, The New York rapper reflected on a time when he had to give his photographer/friend Jerry “Flee Flicks” Flete CPR in order to save his life. He revealed that he learned CPR at the young age of 12 years old.
“My sister has a rare heart condition.. She’s a miracle baby, they didn’t expect her to last at all. She’s 30- something years-old now, she’s my miracle woman and superwoman. My whole family had to learn CPR just in case.”
Jim Jones goes on to explain that CPR isn’t that hard and remembers the training from a young age.
“It’s really not that hard, it’s like riding a bike. It’s real simple. Once you know it, it’s not like rocket science.”
He then joked about the incident and confirmed he did not have to give his friend mouth to mouth.
“No, I did not have to give mouth to mouth resuscitation…No mouth involved..He might not have made it if I had to give him mouth to mouth.”
He ends by saying he’s thankful they can laugh about it now and encouraged his followers to learn CPR.
“God Bless, we can joke about this, man. But I encourage everyone to go learn CPR. It’s a quick course, just a couple hours to get certified. Something that can stick with you for life. You never know where you might be at to where you could lend a helping hand.”
