Former heavyweight champions slip out of the news as easily as ex-presidents, but Muhammad Ali was never your garden-variety champion of all the world. Yesterday in Los Angeles, he responded like a superhero when a distraught man threatened suicide. [Terry Drinkwater] reports.

From a ledge nine floors above Wilshire Boulevard, the hooded man shouted “I’m no good, I’m going to jump! The Vietcong are coming at me. Police, a psychologist and a minister had all but given up trying to change the despondent man’s mind – when Muhammad Ali, who happened to be nearby, volunteered to talk to him.

The former heavyweight champion went to a window and reportedly yelled, ‘I’m your brother, I want to help you.’ Recognizing Ali, the man finally opened the fire escape door and Ali approached him on the ledge. It was a very tense 20 minutes. Several times it looked as though Ali was going to fail. Then, suddenly, it was all over. The man, Ali said later, began to weep. He was taken to the psychiatric ward at the veterans hospital. The former champ promised to visit him there later this week. Terry Drinkwater, CBS News, Los Angeles.
