Kingston's Passenger -- 'We Were Going REALLY Fast'

TMZ spoke with Cassandra Sanchez -- Sean's longtime friend -- who tells us she arrived to Miami Beach with another female friend to ride jet skis with Sean and his buddy on Saturday evening.

Sanchez tells us, "Both jet skis pulled out of the dock at the same time and we were going so fast we just blasted past them. When we turned a corner and crashed ... they were so far behind us they didn't even see us crash."

Sanchez says ... as Sean was racing towards the bridge, she screamed out, "We can't fit under there! Are we going to try and go under there?  Sean stop!"

Sanchez tells us ... she believes Sean tried to turn away from the bridge at the last minute ... and
lost control because they were going "REALLY fast."

The next thing Sanchez remembers is waking up in the water in pain. Sanchez says her friends on the other jet ski raced over and tried to help out ... with Sean's buddy trying to position the injured singer so he wouldn't swallow any more water. They all signaled for help until a boat came to the scene to help out.

Sanchez says, "[Sean] was coughing up blood, foam and pink stuff" ... and when he finally opened his eyes, he kept repeating the words, "I'm hurting. I'm hurting"

Sanchez says her ribs and her jaw are still sore -- but overall, she's OK.

As for Sean, Sanchez says "They have a tube down his throat so he can't really talk, but he is lucid and understands what's going on." Sanchez says doctors plan to keep Sean in the hospital for "a couple more weeks."

She didn't sell him out. She's just telling her account of what happened. It doesn't sound like she's angry at him at all, which is good. Hopefully both of them turn out just fine. He sounds like he's really banged up, though. No different than showing off on a motorcycle, in a car, or any other vehicle. It was a stupid decision to go that fast and he's paying for it. I feel real bad for him. I feel bad for her too.

Every 14 year old Floridian knows how to handle a jet ski and this fat ass almost killed himself and the girl with it? He should be criminally charged.

Pretty stupid to think you're untouchable. Those things are a lot of fun if you're not going that fast and being irresponsible. Stupid decision to do what he did and he should have been smarter knowing he was not only put his life in danger but someone else as well. Hopefully for him he makes a full recovery and learns to be a lot smarter with his decisions because it can end that quickly.

Attention: Fat Albert has gone down, we repeat Fat Albert has gone down.

I don't know about anyone else but I care about what happens to some rapper about as much as I care about the latest Lindsey update which is absolutely nothing.

What an idiotic stunt. Photos of the bridge, shown yesterday, clearly illustrate that nothing taller than a goose - IF THAT - could fit under that bridge. Was he out of his mind? Girl is LUCKY she's alive - and so is he. Sorry but my sympathy quotient for him just shot down a bunch of notches, knowing that he put his other passengers in danger with his own stupid actions.

Pretty stupid of him if she was yelling at him to slow down. He's lucky he didn't kill them both. I hope he has a good excuse, like the throttle stuck on or something. Otherwise he needs a good kick in the a$$.

He better step up with some 'medical bill' money & make nice-nice. Otherwise this girl SHOULD seek some compensation, fair compensation, but compensation none the less. He's an idiot. Slap him with 'reckless driving' for good measure IF this account turns out to be indeed what happened. Awaiting the official police determination. Should be interesting.

Thank God they're both OK. If the throttle didn't malfunction I hope Sean has learned a lesson!
