21-year-old Sean Kingston is in a Miami hospital today after his jet ski crashed into Palm Island Bridge at around 6pm yesterday evening. Local10.com reports that Sean and his female passenger were both thrown from the jet ski and landed in the water. They were both rescued from the water by a good doer on a boat. Sean’s injuries were so serious that he had to be treated in the trauma ward, but his rep says that he has since been transferred to ICU and he’s in critical but stable condition.
“Sean Kingston is now stabilized and has moved from the trauma unit to ICU. Sean’s family thanks everyone for their prayers and support during this time.”
A spokesperson for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission believes that booze was not involved in the crash. The spokesperson added this: “Nine times out of 10, recklessness on the water involving personal watercraft contributes to accidents. That is not necessarily the cause of this one, but we spend a lot of time patrolling the areas looking for violations with jet skis and motor boats.”
I read this story right after I read about the young model who fell to her death at the W Hotel in Atlanta after crashing through a 10th story window during a play fight with another friend. What is going on?! This is why I spend most of my free time drinking Strawberry Hill in my empty bathtub. It isn’t because it’s easy to clean lonely tears and booze slobber from the bathtub. It’s because I can’t fall out of a window from there. Watch, the shower head is totally going to fall on my head now.
Good thoughts wrapped in good thoughts for Sean and his friend.
