Sean Kingston is not dead, but he sure came close to his death after he crashed his jet-ski, with a female companion, in the Miami Causeway late Sunday afternoon. More details are emerging about Sean’s accident, first it being reported that alcohol was not involved at all.
A report released by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission states, “Anderson (Sean Kingston) was operating a PWC with a female passenger westbound along McArthur Cswy towards the Palm Ave bridge. Anderson struck the bridge and was transported to Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition.” The other passenger, a 23-year-old female, was listed as being “uninjured.” Also, the man who potentially saved his life has given us a recount of what the crash scene looked like when he arrived. TMZ caught up with Jonathan Rivera, who was a member of the Coast Guard:
“The guy who heroically jumped into the water to save Sean Kingston says the singer was spitting up blood after his jet ski accident last night — but that Sean was responsive and even spoke during the rescue.
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 the two people on the jet ski were trying to hold Kingston up, but they were struggling to keep his head above water. Rivera says Kingston’s size was a problem for them, as his life vest had come off.
So Rivera says he jumped in the water and noticed Kingston was “puking up blood out of his mouth.”
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.”
