VIDEO: Guy who rescued missing Cleveland woman gives best interview ever


Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight were rescued from a Cleveland house where they'd been held captive for more than a decade. The women were saved when a neighbor, Charles Ramsey, heard screams coming from the house. He went over, broke down the door, and helped Berry call 911. Police showed up and rescued the other women from the home, which reportedly had chains hanging from the ceiling where the women were held captive.

As police investigated the scene and the press flocked to the home near downtown Cleveland, a reporter from WEWS got Ramsey to describe how he saved Berry and called 911. The resulting interview is reminiscent of Kai the Hitchhiker and includes gems like:

  • "My neighbor got some big testicles to pull this off, bro."
  • "I barbeque with this dude. We eat ribs and whatnot and listen to salsa music."
  • "Bro, I knew somethin' was wrong when a little, pretty white girl ran into a black man's arms."
