Former N-Dubz star Dappy saves man’s life after talking him down from Tower Bridge

FORMER N-Dubz star Dappy saved a man’s life after talking him down from a bridge, the Sun can reveal.

The 34-year-old star intervened after seeing the stranger perched on London’s Tower Bridge where police were trying to rescue him.

Incredibly, the 27-year-old Brit was a “huge fan”, and told cops he wanted a few minutes alone with the rapper.

After persuading him off the bridge, the man was taken to St Thomas’s hospital where he was sectioned. 

He is understood to have now been released from hospital, and has since reached out to Dappy to thank him for saving his life.

Last night a source said: “Dappy was filming his new music video around Tower Bridge, but saw loads of police cars and ambulances dotted around.

“The bridge got closed off, and police asked him to leave the area. 

“As he was walking away, Dappy heard this young guy shouting his name and waving frantically as he was perched precariously in an arch directly over the Thames.

“After telling a constable he was a fan, Dappy was invited under the cordon to try. 

“They spent about ten minutes talking, and Dappy was amazing. He told him life was beautiful, and that things would get better basically.

“As a result, the guy let medics climb up and help get him off. After being hospitalised, he was released on Thursday and reached out to DM Dappy, thanking him profusely. 

“The guy’s sister also sent a heartfelt message. Dappy’s been an absolute hero.”

The singer, one third of chart-topping Brit band N-Dubz from 2000-2011, is now working as a solo artist.
