Clearwater, Florida - A Clearwater man says he's alive, thanks to a complete stranger.

Last June, Bill Adams was up on a ladder cleaning out his gutters when all of a sudden:

"I fell backwards and hit my head."

Bill's heart had stopped beating.

"I had what is called 'sudden death syndrome," he explains.

Bill awoke hours later in a hospital bed, not knowing what exactly happened. His wife had seen the fall, but froze up. Then a stranger appeared, who started to perform CPR until paramedics arrived. As soon as they did, the Good Samaritan left.

"She gave my wife a hug and said, 'Everything will be all right,' and that's all we saw of her," says Bill.

For six months, Bill searched for this woman, but no luck. So on Wednesday, we took part in the search and thanks to social media, an Angel really was looking over Bill.

Her name is Angelique Tyson, but goes by the name Angel for short. Angel happens to be a 10 News viewer and saw that we were searching for her on Facebook.

Bill and Angel spoke over the phone for the first time on Wednesday afternoon. 

"I'm so thankful that you were there," Bill told Angel.

Bill says it's a miracle that we found her, but the real miracle is that Angel found Bill.
