In late May, Miami Coast Guard's Jonathan Rivera described Kingston's condition upon 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." (TMZ)
Following the publicized crash, artists like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber and Soulja Boy Tell Em all displayed their support.
"praying for my brother @seankingston I hope he makes a full recovery... smh it's always something :(," he tweeted May 30th. (Soulja Boy Tell Em's Twitter)
