Three months after 4-year-old Sebastion Johnson fell off a 225-foot cliff, he reunited with the hero firefighters who saved his life.

“Thank you for saving my life,” he told the Bodega Head Firefighters today in northern California.

Sebastian was with his family on November 10 in Bodega Head, a rocky beach area north of San Francisco, when the ground beneath his feet suddenly gave way and he tumbled out of sight, his father, Daryl Johnson, told ABC’s San Francisco station KGO-TV.

“The incident that happened was my worst nightmare,” he told the station of a fall that exceeded the height of a 20-story building.

Sebastian injured his skull and broke several bones on his right side, prompting doctors at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in Oakland, California to put the young boy in an induced coma for 10 days.

Sebastian’s mom Jamie Guglielmino described her son’s difficult recovery.

“He’s definitely in the arms of angels right now,” Guglielmino told ABC News. “It’s been real touch and go, but he’s on the road to recovery.”

Sebastian has been staying at the hospital since his fall in November and will probably remain there for another few weeks, a hospital spokesman says. Overall, he is in good health, ABC News reports.
