What would you say to the man responsible for saving your life after a jet ski crash?

When they met for the first time since his brutal accident in Miami waters, singer Sean Kingston greeted his guardian angel and off duty coast guard rescuer Jonathan Rivera with “I love you, my brother.” Sounds about right.
