Jim Jones is known for his beats and bars, but now he is getting a new title: hero. Jones saved a photographer from the clutches of a watery graves.

Jones first learned CPR when he was 12-years-ols and that came in very handy recently. His friend, photographer Jerry “Flee Flicks” Flete had a terrible situation while in Florida.

While speaking to Inside Edition, Jim Jones explained how Flete was having a terrible time in the water and he had to jump in to save the day.

“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.”

Flete had no idea what was happening until his friend, famous rapper Jim Jones, was helping bring him back. “I’m here today because of Jim,” he said.

This is the kind of story that we needed to hear today. The news is full of dreary stories too often, but Jim Jones really stepped up

Flete added, “I didn’t know what was going on at the moment,” Jerry explained. “I guess everything happened so fast. But I had an out-of-body experience. I felt like I was telling myself to come back to myself. Then I just, I guess when I snapped out of it, Jim was giving me chest compressions. The first person I woke up to was just Jim. He was holding me. I was sitting down. It happened while I was sitting down, so Jim was over me, hugging over me, I guess giving me chest compressions. That’s how I started breathing.”
