MUSKEGON, Mich.-Tom Anderson is the Muskegon man pulled from the Grand River last-week after his fishing boat flipped near the Sixth Street Bridge in Grand Rapids.

He is recovering, and despite losing at-least $20,000 worth of fishing equipment, he is "Happy to be alive" and has a new lease on life.  Before he's fully at peace, however, he wants to thank the men who pulled him from the icy cold waters of the Grand River.
