Chance the Rapper was looking back on 2018 New Years Eve and revealed something major happened that he never spoke about before- He says that on Easter Sunday in 2018, he saved a person’s life by pulling them out of a burning car!
In a series of Instagram stories, Chance wrote that the incident started when he witnessed a driver going “like 90 [miles per hour]” barrel into a wall after exiting a freeway
After the accident, Chance broke a car window and removed an unconscious person from the car:.
“I was the only person out there when it first happened,” Chance explained, “and his car was on fire so I had to break his window, take off his seatbelt, let his seat back and pull a whole grown man out [of] the car unconscious.”
He continued, “I was only by myself at first, then two older men helped me pull folks out the front after I got the doors open.”
He even admitted to thinking the entire car accident was a prank à la Punk’d.

Chance was on the scene to help someone who found themselves in a terrible accident this past Easter. Now he’s hoping to know about the status of the driver after not hearing back about it. 🙏 Lets hope the gentleman came out of the wreck ok. Props to Chance for jumping to action as best he could
Chance said he was “never able to find out if [the] dude was alright,” and asked his 9.3 million followers for any leads in getting to the bottom of what happened after he left the scene of the crash.
It worked! He tweeted later, “A kid DM’d me saying it was his uncle and that he lived!!”
