Muhammad Ali once saved a young mans life


In 1981, Muhammed Ali’s best friend Howard Bingham happened to be across the street from a building in which a 21 year old man named ‘Joe’ was threatening to jump and kill himself. Bingham called Ali, who lived in the area and informed him on what was going on, Ali immediately came as soon as possible. He ran into the building wearing a full suit, confronting Joe one window over yelling, “You’re my brother! I love you, and I couldn’t lie to you.” Soon after Joe made his way to the fire escape, Ali put his arm around him and guided him inside. The two walked out of the building together, got in Ali’s car and drove, first making a stop at the police station and then to a nearby hospital.
