• Tyler Perry donates $50K to paralyzed good Samaritan


    ATLANTA - Channel 2 Action has learned the good Samaritan paralyzed when he saved the life of a 4-year-old girl, Mike Patterson, is getting some help from an Atlanta media mogul.

    A representative for Atlanta's Tyler Perry told Channel 2's Diana Davis that Perry has donated $50,000 to the Michael Patterson fund.

    Patterson was paralyzed more than a week ago when he broke his neck diving into a creek to rescue 4-year-old Javea Jones.

    Patterson's condition worsened over the weekend when he developed a high fever and infection.

    His Facebook page said that fever is now under control.

    Donations can also be made to the Mike Patterson Donation Fund, care of River City Bank, 228 N. 2nd Ave. SW, Rome, Ga. 30165.
