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."

@lili--- RIGHT ON, it's that ghetto mentality, don't snitch [except when you Tyree-L'shan kills somebody in my family] that explains why the folks in those communities are afraid to leave their houses... so they move into safe neighborhoods [thanks to Section 8], with their incorrigible kids who are typically 2-3 years behind their grade levels slow down the teaching objectives... and eventually they turn those neighborhoods into crime infested havens... and they keep moving further and further out, like a pestilent... but I know some ultra-redneck neighborhoods who won't tolerate their antics-and they steer clear of them.

this is why I stopped jetskiiing in Dade county. Too many fking idiots on the waterway that have no clue as to what they are doing. I also blame the jet ski companies for making their watercraft fatass friendly. Used to be that jetski's required skill and balance to perfect. Now any fat ass moron that has no clue on how to safely operate, can sit comfortably on board a
4 stroke or higher engine that can go 65 mph stock!

Why when an article talks about a black celebrity entertainer, people automatically assume he is a rapper. I read comments about Chris Brown and saw this, now the ninth commenter named Wicked referred to him as a rapper too. ALL black entertainers are NOT rappers.

He got exactly what he deserved. If he wanted to head for a low bridge going full throttle ON HIS OWN, I would be all for it. When he puts a passenger on the back and takes them for a hell ride, it's a whole different ballgame.

She's probably pissed that the doctors found nothing wrong with her. Since she's not injured, she probably won't get a dime. She would have been better off telling the REAL truth - that he was drinking before getting on that thing and it impaired his judgement. Maybe they'll both learn a lesson from it.

Agreed.

I do have to admit I like his music though.

On another note, no pun intended this time, He reminds me of the black version of Christopher Cross from the 70's... :-)

Seriously there are just too many dumbasses here in Florida that jump on those things & have no idea what they're doing They endanger everyone on the water. If the cir***stances of this accident prove out as they are intially being reported then ticket & fine this fool & I hope that girl DOES recoup some monetary reward. Only THEN will the lesson even come close to getting 'learned'. Mistake & accident my ass. Most of these accidents are pure stupidity that risks MY LIFE

He is an idiot with no regard for safety. She should have let go and jumped off the back. People like that should stay off watercrafts.

The "support" should not be going to this jackass, but to the poor woman he almost killed, even after she begged him to slow down. More evidence of celebrity stupidity.

I have found a product that really works in help heal burns, sores, scars, eczema,dermatitis, dandraff, and stretch marks. It also help diminish wrinkles by moisturizing the skin, promoting cell renewal, and increasing circulation. This substance also contains cinnamic acid, that helps protect the skin fromharmful UV rays. This item is called Mattie's Gem and may be purchased at nicolazshop.com. Try it. You will love it.
