In July, Tom Kissel was with his dog when he fell into the river at River Forest Yacht Club in Freeport.

Mary Jo Lender and her husband saw the dog struggling in the water, then saw Kissel was unconscious.

They pulled Kissel from the river and Lender performed CPR until medics arrived.

“If it wasn’t for my husband going in and getting him from the water, and then the help that he had to pull him out. We had a person call 911, stay on the line with 911. I had another person here who was trying to help give mouth to mouth. I didn’t do it alone, but I really feel like we were here for Tom,” Lender said.

This week, they reunited on the same dock where their paths first crossed.

“They thought I was dead. I had no heartbeat, pulse, nothing. They just kept working on me. They didn’t stop.”

Kissel was in a coma for the days that followed the accident.

Today, he says he is about 90% back to normal.
