Sean Kingston Critically Injured in Jet Ski Accident Near Miami Beach

Update 1: Sean is out of the Trauma ward and has been moved to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
Rapper Sean Kingston is in critical condition in a Miami hospital.

Local news is reporting that Kingston and a female companion were thrown from a jet ski after hitting a concrete bridge Sunday evening near Miami Beach.

Kingston and his passenger were rescued by other boaters nearby and rescue crews stabilized them before transporting both to Jackson Memorial Hospital.

Sean’s injuries are critical and he is being treated in the trauma center. The hospital has not released any update as of Monday morning.

A rep for the singer said,

“Sean Kingston was in an accident today. No further details are available at the moment. He and his family thank everyone for the well-wishes."

Two men near the accident scene jumped into the water and pulled Kingston to safety and say the rapper was vomiting blood but was also talking and somewhat responsive.

Due to Sean’s size it was difficult to keep his head above water, but they held onto Kingston until police could get a boat out to him.

Once onshore, he was loaded into a waiting ambulance and transported to the hospital to be stabilized.

Kingston is well known for his song “Beautiful Girls” and for his video appearance in Justin Bieber’s music video "Eenie Meenie" as well as appearing on stage with Bieber during his North American concert tours.

Kingston has also made guest appearances on popular television shows including “90210” and “The Suite Life on Deck” with Dylan and Cole Sprouse.

His song “Fire Burning” has been featured on “Dancing With the Stars”, “So You Think you can Dance?”, “Yo Gabba Gabba!” and “Melrose Place”.

  1. This must’ve been an awful experience for Sean Kingston. Good thing that he was stabilized and move to the ICU immediately. I heard that, in just six weeks, he has recovered fully. I hope this will never happen again to him or to anyone. :)
