Robert Hoobler, the police officer who saved Lil Wayne’s life as a toddler, handed away on the age of 65 final week.
Lil Wayne issued a heartbreaking assertion on Instagram following reviews of the death of Robert Hoobler, better known as Uncle Bob, the police officer who saved the rap legend’s life when he was 12 years old. Wayne shared a photograph on Instagram of Hoobler on the steps of his childhood residence the place he rescued the then-12-year-old rapper after he suffered from a self-inflicted gun wound to the chest.
“Every part occurs for a motive. I used to be dying once I met u at this very spot. U refused to let me die. Every part that doesn’t occur, doesn’t occur for a motive. That motive being you and religion. RIP uncle Bob. Aunt Kathie been ready for u. I’ll love & miss u each and reside for us all,” Lil Wayne wrote.
Lil Wayne defined how Uncle Bob took him to the hospital after police found his physique at his residence when he was 12 years outdated. Although different officers tried to search out incriminating proof, Hoobler rushed Lil Wayne to the hospital in his cruiser since there have been no paramedics accessible within the space. Hoobler revealed in a while that an ER nurse mentioned Wayne would’ve died from his accidents if they’d waited for an ambulance.
