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.

I live in Florida & 'feel bad' that there's people like Sean Kingston out on the waterways.

poor girl must have been terrified...considering where's he's from he should have had better experience/knowledge. it's not like he was some vacationer who didn't grow up around water.

fat pig! What an idiot. Could have killed her, good thing shes being a rat, he deserves it. Idiots dont understand that jet ski's etc arent a joke. If you speed up beyond speed limit, there are consequences. One wrong move and BANG. He is a total pig!

This is another case of a guy trying to impress a girl by going really fast. Guys just stop it. Especially rich guys. You don't need to try so hard. You got money and fame. You've already got her.

Jetski's only steer when under power. Let off the throttle and the old theory of a body in motion stays in motion. Straight into the bridge stanchion. Naggers....

____________

So maybe he let off the throttle too late and panicked and couldn't steer it? Is that a possibility?
I just can't see this man doing this deliberately. If he did well then he's crazy lol.

Meh    

Just another kid going too fast and way beyond his capabilities. Sean just happened to be on a jet ski vs in a car...although I bet he displays the same poor judgment while driving. Nothing new...just lucky he didn't kill anyone else. Kids have to learn the hard way.
