Dappy helped save a man's life after talking him down from the edge of Tower Bridge.
The former N-Dubz star had been filming a new music video nearby in London when he spotted police talking to the distressed individual.
According to reports, the 27-year-old man said he was a huge fan and asked officers for a few minutes to have a chat with Dappy, 34.
Amazingly, the man eventually agreed to step away from the edge and was taken to St Thomas' hospital.
It's understood that he has since been released and has reached out to Dappy to thank him for saving his life.
A source told The Sun: "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."
This comes after a lorry driver was branded a hero for potentially saving a man's life by stopping underneath a motorway bridge.
A distressing image released recently showed a man sat over the edge of a bridge on the M62.
However, when the driver spotted the man up ahead, he parked his vehicle on the hard shoulder, right beneath him, stopping him from jumping.
Since the picture was shared online, people have praised the driver for his actions.
Writing on social media, one user said: "Well done to that lorry driver. Hope the person on the bridge gets the help they need."
Echoing these sentiments, another commented: "Trucker is a good human and deserves the utmost respect."
