Sean Kingston, a singer of a song that Jess admitted liking (“HE SANG FIREBURNING DAMMIT” – Jess), was enjoying Miami this weekend until he crashed his jet ski into the Palm Ave bridge and tried to bust my dead pool bracket. Kingston was transported to Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition. Somebody called 911. TMZ reports:
Hip-hop star Sean Kingston is in critical condition in a Miami Beach hospital after being injured in a bad jet skiing accident Sunday evening. According to Local10.com, the “Beautiful Girls” singer had a female passenger on board his watercraft when it crashed into a bridge around 6:00 PM local time. We’re told both Kingston and his passenger were rescued from the water by a good Samaritan.
The “injured” and “Sunday evening” make it sound like he stepped on a crab during a romantic stroll and did that thing where he hopped on one foot during a music montage. I don’t know. Maybe he did hurt his foot, too. I guess that wasn’t reported because he was puking blood all over the ocean. TMZ reports:
Jonathan Rivera, a member of the Coast Guard, says he was driving his boat around Star Island on his day off … when he was called over to the accident scene by a man and a woman on a jet ski. Rivera says he noticed an empty jet ski, a woman in the water floating (she was wearing a vest and complaining her head hurt) and Kingston…Rivera says he wrapped his arms around Kingston and held on to the jet ski to help keep Kingston’s head above water. Rivera said Kingston was “convulsing and throwing up blood all over me” — but said he didn’t notice any head trauma. Rivera tells us he held onto Kingston for about 15 minutes, until a police boat finally arrived. Rivera says he doesn’t think he could have held on much longer than he did. Rivera says when helped arrived, he told Sean he was going to be okay. He says Kingston repeated back to him, “I’m going to be okay.”
Recent reports say alcohol wasn’t a factor, but I was kinda hoping it was. Because if he wasn’t drunk, that means Sean Kingston turns into an Asian woman trying merge onto an interstate when he gets on a jet ski. “That’s gangsta,” nobody was quoted as saying.
