Kurtis Blow Is Recovering From Heart Attack
Four LAPD officers arrived to the scene initially following up on a report that there was an altercation between the 57-year old Walker and his young son. When the officers approached the situation, he collapsed and went into cardiac arrest. Walker gasped for air after several minutes and the officers rolled him on his side to alleviate his breathing. He then stopped breathing all together and officers began doing chest compressions for over 5 minutes.
“I died and those officers saved my life,” said Kurtis. “The police saved my life, a Black man. In this day and age, people need to hear that.”
Kurtis Blow is currently in stable condition and wants to personally thank all of the officer that were involved with saving his life.
