Ramsey talks about eating his McDonald's, listening to salsa music with his neighbor Ariel Castro and the now most infamous line: "I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man's arms."
He comes across as a regular guy, just living his daily life in his neighborhood, when he became an overnight hero.
That's the word being used to describe Ramsey now.
Ramsey has become a personification of courage, seeing something suspicious and taking action, which ultimately may have saved three women and a child who were locked away. He's a figure of good in the midst of a lot of bad that went down in his own neighborhood, a Cleveland face that the world has rallied around.
The full extent of Ramsey's role in the rescue is still up for debate. Another neighbor told NewsChannel5 reporter Stephanie Ramirez he was actually the first to help Berry get out.
However, there's no denying the symbolic figure Ramsey has become in this story and the fame he has gained.
His interview has gone viral, viewed millions of times on YouTube and a top trending click across the country.
He's been on "Anderson Cooper 360" and "Good Morning America," chatting candidly about his experience but not playing up his role as a hero.
