Update: Sean Kingston Expected To Make Full Recovery After Jet-Ski Accident
Sean Kingston gave his friends, family and fans a scare when it was reported that he — and a passenger — were in a jet-ski accident Sunday (May 29), resulting in the singer being rushed to a nearby Miami hospital. Kingston was originally in critical condition, but has since been categorized as stable and recent reports suggest he’ll make a full recovery in up to six weeks.
According to CNN, the 21-year-old singer suffered a broken jaw, fractured wrist and water in his lungs and is recovering in the intensive care unit.
Recording artist Trav reportedly visited Kingston at the hospital Monday (May 30) and told CNN he was “very responsive.”
News of the singer’s updated condition was released yesterday, along with details of the crash from witnesses. “They were calling us over, telling us, ‘He’s drowning, he’s drowning,'” Carmen Rivera, who was boating nearby with her husband Jonathan and friend Jimmy Vega, told CNN. “We jumped in the water to help him keep his head above water,” Vega added.
Kingston released his “King of Kingz” mixtape earlier this year and is said to be working on the follow-up to 2009’s “Tomorrow.” Check back in as this story continues to develop.
