Report: Tyler Perry sends supplies to the Bahamas, rescues seven people needing medical attention


ABC/Rick RowellTyler Perry is reaching out to the victims of Hurricane Dorian in The Bahamas by airlifting supplies — and  personally providing an emergency rescue. 

The media mogul used his private seaplane for two trips Thursday to the Abaco Islands, delivering relief aid, and picking up seven passengers needing medical attention, according to TMZ.

Supplies included water, juice, sleeping bags, diapers, various hygiene products and other basic necessities.

Perry posted Tuesday on Instagram, “To all the incredible people of the Bahamas who have welcomed me and called me an adoptive son, I want you to know that I am watching closely, and as soon as I can, I will be there to do whatever I can to help you rebuild stronger and better.”

The media mogul continued, “You’re not only in my heart and my prayers, you’re in my blood. God bless you. Stay Bahamas strong. The sun will shine again.”

Perry plans to make more shipments to assist the Hurricane Dorian relief effort in The Bahamas.
