To remember Dirty
Ol’ Dirty

03/09/98 Time
When OL’ DIRTY BASTARD, a member of the Wu-Tang Clan, left his Brooklyn studio on Monday, he was met with the sight of a 4-year-old girl trapped under a 1996 Mustang that had run her over. O.D.B. and several members of his posse rushed to the rescue and helped lift the car off her body; he later visited her while she was recovering in the hospital. Then, at Wednesday’s otherwise boring Grammy awards, O.D.B., who had lost an award to Sean (“Puffy”) Combs, tried to add some excitement by rushing to the stage, grabbing the mike and proclaiming, “Puffy is good, but Wu-Tang is the best!” To top off his week, the next morning a chastened O.D.B. soulfully apologized.

The child was trapped underneath the vehicle whenDirty and some of his friends lifted the car off of her. She was taken to the hospital and treated for first and second degree burns from the car’s engine.

Dirty visited the hospital to check on the girl’s condition, but the normally anything-but-low key ODB never identified himself to her family. However, they recognized him and alerted the media.
