Jim Jones Saves Photographer's Life

Rapper Jim Jones is being hailed a hero after he saved a photographer's life after noticing him choking at a Florida event for his cryptocurrency Capo Coin.

Jerry Flete told Inside Edition, "We was just literally just hanging out on a break from work. Just hanging out. It just happened so fast. Basically, I woke up, Jim giving me chest compression and telling me, 'Wake up. Wake up.' He basically saved my life. I'm here today because of Jim."

After his friend Doug alerted him to his choking friend, Jim Jones sprang into action.

"I just saw Flee sitting, just going through something that didn't seem good like he was choking. 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."

Capo says he performed CPR on his friend. He took classes as a kid.

"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. 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."
