Sean Kingston Is 'Sedated But Fully Conscious'

1 June 2011
Sean Kingston remains hospitalized in critical condition and hooked up to a ventilator with a tube inserted in his throat after a jet-ski accident in Miami, but his rep tells MTV News, "He is aware of what is going on around him," adding that the singer "is sedated but fully conscious."

Jackson Memorial, the hospital where Kingston is being treated, also issued this statement to MTV: " Sean Kingston is currently in critical but stable condition at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida. Sean's family asks for privacy at this time but is thankful to his friends, family and fans for their outpouring of prayers and well wishes."

On Sunday, Kingston and a female passenger crashed his Sea Doo jet-ski into the Palm Island Bridge at approximately 6 p.m. ET. After being rescued by an off-duty Coast Guard employee, the pop star was taken to the trauma center at Jackson Memorial, but has since been moved to the intensive care unit. TMZ spoke to Kingston's rescuer, who said that Sean was "puking up blood out of his mouth." Another witness told the site he noticed a gash under Kingston's chin after the crash.

Cassandra Sanchez, Sean's friend and passenger on the jet-ski at the time of the accident, has since been discharged from the hospital, Kingston's rep confirmed to us. Sanchez also spoke to the gossip site, telling them Kingston tried to turn away from the bridge but was going "really fast" and couldn't avoid the crash. Sanchez also said that as Kingston was maneuvering toward the bridge, she urged him to stop and screamed out, "We can't fit under there! Are we going to try and go under there? Sean, stop!"
