Kingston 'stable' after water crash

Sean Kingston is in a stable condition after a jet-ski accident on Sunday.

The 'Beautiful Girls' hitmaker was rushed to the Jackson Memorial Hospital after crashing into the Palm Island Bridge in Miami, Florida, over the weekend, but he has now been moved from a trauma ward to an intensive care unit (ICU).

His publicist Joseph Carozza said: "Sean Kingston is now stabilised and has moved from the trauma unit to ICU. Sean's family thanks everyone for their prayers and support during this time."

A woman who was with Sean – real name Kisean Anderson – is now alert and talking to investigators.

Officers are said to have ruled out alcohol playing any part in the accident.

A statement from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission – which regulates boats in Florida waters – read: "Anderson was operating a PWC (personal watercraft) with a female passenger westbound along McArthur Cswy (Causeway) towards the Palm Ave bridge. Anderson struck the bridge and was transported to Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition."

Celebrity friends of the 21-year-old singer's have put out their support for him.

Rihanna wrote: "Sean we praying for u baby.(sic)"

Justin Bieber, who collaborated with Sean on his track 'Eenie Meenie', added yesterday: "Got my friend Sean Kingston in my prayers tonight. A true friend and big bro. Please keep him in your prayers tonight as well.(sic)"
