On Sunday, rapper Sean Kingston was involved in a terrible jet skiing accident in Miami. He was taken to a nearby hospital after crashing into a bridge, and was listed in critical condition. He has since left the trauma unit for ICU, with his condition stabilized.
Sean’s female passenger, a friend named Cassandra Sanchez, said that they were going super fast when they hit the bridge. She said that she arrived at the beach with another friend to ride jet skis with Sean and his friend on Saturday night.
She said, “Both jet skis pulled out of the dock at the same time and were going so fast we just blasted past them. When we turned a corner and crashed…they were so far behind us they didn’t even see us crash.”
She went on to reveal that as they were getting near to the bridge, she screamed, “We can’t fit under there! Are we going to try and go under there? Sean stop!”
She said that she believes Sean tried to turn away at the last minute, but they lost control. TMZ has more:
The next thing Sanchez remembers is waking up in the water in pain. Sanchez says her friends on the other jet ski raced over and tried to help out … with Sean’s buddy trying to position the injured singer so he wouldn’t swallow any more water. They all signaled for help until a boat came to the scene to help out.
Sanchez says, “[Sean] was coughing up blood, foam and pink stuff” … and when he finally opened his eyes, he kept repeating the words, “I’m hurting. I’m hurting”
Sanchez says her ribs and her jaw are still sore — but overall, she’s OK.
As for Sean, Sanchez says “They have a tube down his throat so he can’t really talk, but he is lucid and understands what’s going on.” Sanchez says doctors plan to keep Sean in the hospital for “a couple more weeks.”
We’re hoping for a speedy recovery for Sean!
