Sean Kingston Critically Hurt in Jet Ski Accident

Hip-hop star is in stable condition in a Miami hospital’s ICU unit after crashing his watercraft into a Miami Beach bridge

Hip-hop singer Sean Kingston has been stabilized and moved to the intensive care unit at a hospital after crashing his watercraft into a Miami Beach bridge, his publicist told Associated Press Monday.

Kingston and a female passenger were injured when the watercraft hit the Palm Island Bridge around 6 p.m. Sunday, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino told AP.

Both were hospitalized early Monday at Ryder Trauma Center, but Pino said he didn't know their conditions.

TMZ spoke to an off-duty Coast Guard office, Jonathan Rivera, who said he helped care for Kingston as emergency workers were in transit to the accident scene.

Rivera told TMZ that Kingston was "convulsing and throwing up blood all over me." When a police boat arrived 15 minutes after the accident, Rivera said Kingston told him, "I'm going to be OK."

The crash is being investigated, but nothing has emerged so far to suggest alcohol was involved, Pino added.

The Miami Herald reports that a passing boater saw the accident and brought the injured onto his vessel.

Kingston first hit it big in 2007 with "Beautiful Girls" and has also collaborated with Justin Bieber. Kingston's self-titled debut album sold over 1 million copies worldwide.

On Twitter, Bieber posted a message of support Monday: "Got my friend Sean Kingston in my prayers tonight. A true friend and big bro. Please keep him in your prayers tonight as well."

A number of hip-hop musicians were in Miami Beach over the weekend for Urban Beach Week.
