Oh no! This is absolutely awful!
Sean Kingston and an unidentified female were injured last night in a jet ski accident near Miami, leaving the two with substantial injuries that needed to be treated in the trauma unit!
Thankfully, however, his condition has now been stabilized!
According to Jorge Pino, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission:
"Sean was heading west from the MacArthur Causeway and Miami Beach Islands when his personal watercraft collided with the bridge, and he and his female passenger ended up in the water. A good Samaritan tended to the two of them until Miami Beach Fire Rescue arrived and saw there were injuries. Nothing indicates there was alcohol involved. Nine times out of 10, recklessness on the water involving personal watercraft contributes to accidents. That is not necessarily the cause of this one, but we spend a lot of time patrolling the areas looking for violations with jet skis and motor boats."
And the singer's publicist, Joseph Carozza, said in the following statement:
"Sean Kingston is now stabilized and has moved from the trauma unit to ICU. Sean's family thanks everyone for their prayers and support during this time."
We're certainly thinking of him during such a frightening time.
Hang in there, buddy! Stay strong!
