Oct 29, 2015 – How Police Tried To Rescue Louis Vuitton’s First Black Male Model, Sam Sarpong While Attempting To Jump Down A Bridge In California

MTV Star, Sam Sarpong has died by jumping off a bridge in Pasadena, Southern Califonia.

The United Kingdom born television personality, supermodel and actor, who has Ghanaian descent, was spotted at about 3 pm on Monday below the Colorado Street Bridge, often referred to as ‘Suicide Bridge’.

It was reported that Local Police spent no fewer than seven hours attempting to talk the 40-year-old star down from the ledge.

However, a UK based online platform, INDEPENDENCE reported that Los Angeles County Coroner’s office said the case was being investigated as a possible suicide but the cause of death would not be determined till the results of a toxicology test are released.

Meanwhile, Sarpong moved to the US and forged a successful career as catwalk model, working for Tommy Hilfiger, Gucci and Versace and became Louis Vuitton’s first black male model.

  1. so sad to hear this but am kind of wondering why police and family members tried for 7 good hours talking him out of suicide and yet could not get him off the bridge. I still remember his face in the movie ,Anchor Babty where he played the role of (Paul Unanga) Omoni Oboli”s husband .What a loss. May he find rest in the bosom of the Lord.

  2. But the sad truth is that a person who commit suicide his does not find rest in Jesus’ name!! that’s what us Christians believe

    • That is not biblical, there is no verse in the bible that say that. Salvation his through Christ it is not conditional
