Hip Hop pioneer Kurtis Walker aka Kurtis Blow is recovering after suffering a heart attack at a bus stop in Los Angeles.

Four LAPD police officers arrived to the scene initially following up on a call that there was an altercation between the 57-year old Walker and his young son. When the officers approached the situation, Kurtis collapsed and went into cardiac arrest.  He gasped for air after several minutes and the police officers rolled him on his side to alleviate his breathing. He then stopped breathing all together and officers began doing chest compression’s for over 5 minutes.

“I died and those officers saved my life, The police saved my life, a Black man; In this day and age, people need to hear that” said Kurtis Blow.

Kurtis Blow is currently in stable condition and wants to personally thank all of the police officers that were involved with saving his life.
