Sean Kingston's Mother Personally Thanks The Heroic Man Who Saved Her Son's Life

| Filed under: Music MinuteInspiration

Sean Kingston owe you one

Sean Kingston's mother has reached out to Jonathan Rivera, the off-duty Coast Guard officer who saved her son from drowning after his jet ski accident in Miami, and personally thanked him.

She could not express her gratitude enough and assured him Sean will thank him in person when he's feeling better.

Rivera was out boating with his friends when he arrived at the site of Kingston's crashed jet ski. After hearing people yelling that the victim was drowning, he dove in the water and pulled up the submerged singer out of the water.

The courageous Coast Guardsman then held Kingston above water, while talking to the female rider clinging onto the jet ski, until emergency services arrived.

In a statement, Jonathan Rivera said:

"I'm not worried about anything but him getting better. I'm glad he is recovering and that's all that matters."

Spoken like a true hero and a fine example of a class act. Thank you for your quick and decisive display of bravery that saved this young man's life!

    Many thanks to the heroic EMT's and other professionals that help those of us in need. I am epileptic and have needed EMT's in my town three times over the past 3 years. It's really wonderful when someone with a large forum acknowledges these fine folks. I ALWAYS thank a fireman, policeman or other life saving person when I meet them in public. ALWAYS…ALWAYS…say thanks to the wonderful people…..
