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."

some of you guys could be more sensitive considering he is in ICU fighting for his life. obviously he made a huge mistake which he will have to pay for. stop acting like you are perfect and making jokes about a young man who was almost killed just a few days ago. imagine if that was your son. Hopefully he survives and can encourage others to not make the same mistake he made.

You can go 50mph on a jetski. Dangerous things they are.

People jumping to conclusions as usual. You can't blame someone without hearing their side of the story...anyways, I hope Sean and Cassandra get fine quickly as we're highly-anticipating his concert here in Uganda come July 29.

This kind of stuff happens all the time where I'm from (Michigan). People going way too fast, and they cut the power to the motor when they try to turn, which on a jet ski basically mean you're going to continue going straight because the rudder relies on the water from the prop to turn.

I hope they all recover fully. I don't believe he wanted to hurt her or himself. Poor decision, bad outcome.

I smell a civil lawsuit because he was handling equipment which could be considered deadly in a dangerous manner, in addition he was asked to slow down several times. Dunm, Dumb, Dumb. Get paid girl, I would.

Maybe Fatboy will now go on a diet now since he barely floated to the surface. This should be his wake up call.

I hope the girl sues the crap out of him for endangering her life. He needs to pay up that fat butt of his.
