More details have been released in relation to singer Sean Kingston‘s rescue following a major jet ski crash in Florida over the weekend including his condition upon being saved.
According to the Coast Guard’s Jonathan Rivera, Kingston had blood coming out of his mouth after the Sunday (May 29) crash.
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)
