Just three months after a 4-year-old boy fell off a 225-foot cliff in San Francisco—and survived—he has finally been reunited with the firefighters who saved his life.
On November 10, Sebastian Johnson was with his family at Bodega Head, a rocky beach area just north of San Francisco, when the ground suddenly gave way and he plummeted down the cliff.
"The incident that happened was my worst nightmare," Sebastian’s dad, Daryl Johnson, told KGO-TV.
The fact that the 4-year-old even lived is a miracle, Johnson said, as the height of the drop actually exceeded that of a 20-story building.
Sebastian’s road to recovery hasn’t been easy. The impact of the fall left the little boy with such serious injuries to his skull and bones on the ride side of his body that doctors at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital in Oakland, California, had to put him into an induced coma for 10 days.
"He’s definitely in the arms of angels right now," Sebastian’s mother, Jamie Guglielmino, told ABC News. "It’s been real touch and go, but he’s on the road to recovery."
Although Sebastian has been living at the hospital since his unbelievable fall in November, a hospital spokesman told ABC News that he should be coming back home in the next few weeks.
"Thank you for saving my life," the grateful little boy said upon seeing the Bodega Head Firefighters, who rescued him after the fall.
