Perry told WGN TV about the moment he saved the man’s life:

‘I don’t think I was thinking about what could happen to me at the moment. It was more of what do I have to do to make the situation peaceful. I felt a little shock. I felt it all over my body actually, and then I just didn’t let that stop me.’

‘No one actually did anything, they just wanted to record’.

The man who filmed the event, Tavi Ghee, told ABC Chicago: ‘It was definitely surreal. That was an out-of-body experience.’

In an interview with CBS News, Perry described the scene saying: ‘I immediately noticed there was a fight because both guys got their dukes up – they were like putting their stuff down.’

He continued: ‘I could’ve kept walking, but I was like, you know what? I’m not going to keep walking – because God wouldn’t want me to do that, so I took action immediately.’
Perry added: ‘I was thinking about, if that was me in that situation, how would I want people to treat me? I’m just happy that the guy was alive, more than anything. I didn’t see myself as a hero, to be honest.’
