After a near-fatal jet ski accident in May, Sean Kingston was reunited with the man who saved his life. Off-duty Coast Guard rescuer, Jonathan Rivera, happened to be nearby and helped the 21-year-old singer get his head above water 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,” he told “Today’s” Natalie Morales. “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.”

The “Beautiful Girls” hitmaker will return to the recording studio next week to work on his third album. He plans to perform his first post-accident concert on the “Today” show.
