Sean Kingston remains in critical but stable condition following his jet-ski accident from this past weekend, and the “Beautiful Girls” singer’s longtime friend Cassandra Sanchez, who was Kingston’s passenger, is speaking out about their crash, telling TMZ that Sean was driving “really fast”. More details below.
“Both jet skis pulled out of the dock at the same time and we were going so fast we just blasted past them,” Sanchez says. “When we turned a corner and crashed … they were so far behind us they didn’t even see us crash.”
Upon seeing they were heading towards the bridge, Sanchez recalls screaming to Kingston, “We can’t fit under there! Are we going to try and go under there? Sean stop!”
Kingston tried to swerve out of the way at the last minute, but he lost control of the jet-ski and they crashed into the bridge. Sanchez remembers being in the water and being in extreme pain as their friends on the other jet-ski raced to help them and pull them out of the water.
“[Sean] was coughing up blood, foam and pink stuff,” says Sanchez. When Sean opened his eyes, he kept repeating, “I’m hurting, I’m hurting.”
Sanchez was left with pains in her ribs and jaw, but she says she’s mostly okay. Kingston, however, remains in critical but stable condition at the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami. Says Sanchez, “They have a tube down his throat so he can’t really talk, but he is lucid and understands what’s going on.”
