Recovering R&B star Sean Kingston has finally met the man who dragged him to safety after a serious jet ski accident in May (11).
The Beautiful Girls hitmaker was knocked unconscious when he crashed his water vehicle into a bridge in Miami, Florida.
Off-duty Coast Guard Jonathan Rivera saw the star's friend desperately waving for help and he and his pal Jimmy Vega rushed to the rescue.
Kingston, who spent almost a month in hospital undergoing surgery and recovering from his injuries, met the ex-Marine in person for the very first time on Wednesday (03Aug11) to personally pay his thanks.
The two embraced during the reunion, which was captured by cameras for U.S. breakfast show Today, and Kingston said, "What's up my brother? I want to thank you man... I love you brother."
During a recent interview, the singer hailed Rivera as a "hero" and "an angel in the sky".
