Pop singer Sean Kingston was involved in a life changing jet-skiing accident last Sunday.

Sean sustained substantial life-threatening injuries, but by the grace of a higher power and a good samaritan, Sean Kingston is expected to make a full recovery.

GlobalGrind wishes Sean Kingston well and hopes he returns to create more dope music.

Sean Kingston isn’t the only celebrity who has cheated death. Kanye West cheated death in October 2002, when he was in a horrible car crash that left him almost unrecognizable.

Kanye had to get his jaw wired shut for months, which inspired him to make the song “Through The Wire.”

Sixteen years later, Bret was involved in an accident at the Tony Awards when a piece of the set came crashing down on his head.

In 2008, Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker was flying in a Learjet 60 with his friend DJ AM when the plane crashed in Columbia, South Carolina. Travis Barker survived coming out of the crash with severe burns, as did DJ AM. However AM, as a recovering drug addict, relapsed a year after the crash and died of a drug overdose.
