Today, Tina says she's grateful to be alive. She continues to control her depression through medication and says her support system helps her work through struggles. "Because before I was stuffing everything and trying to push it down, push all the pain down, repress everything," Tina says.

For the first time on Oprah's stage, Tina says thank you to the officers who saved her life. Her husband, Dan, also stands up and embraces Officer Boldt.

"I think that's so great that you wanted to hug him," Oprah says to Dan. "What did you say to him?"

"I said, 'Thank you so much,'" Dan says. "I talked to him once right after the jump, and I told you [Officer Boldt] you were my hero and that someday we'd meet, and I sure am glad we got this opportunity to do so. Thank you."
