After a near-fatal jet ski accident in May, Sean Kingston was reunited with the man who saved his life on the “Today’s Show.”

Off-duty Coast Guard rescuer, Jonathan Rivera, happened to be nearby and helped the 21-year-old singer after he crashed into a bridge in Miami.

The two met in person for the first time since the accident at Kingston’s home.

“I want to thank you man. I love you, my brother,” said a grateful Kingston, who also underwent open heart surgery following the accident.

“It’s a blessing. God is great,I feel like I’m blessed, overcome a tragic situation. Definitely trauma and for me to still be here, it’s only God’s work. I think my work is not done. It wasn’t my time yet.”
