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."

He was her air bag. He might have made a poor decision jet skiing but in reality she walked away because he took the hit.

I don't understand these idiots saying "You vile, mean humans how could you say that about Sean?!".. Hello.. The man is a reckless driver that almost killed his passenger, because really who cares about him, he got himself into that situation. Why are you trying to make excuses for him? Do you make excuses when some moron, drunk or not, crashes into a hydro pole and kills all his passengers that were telling him to slow down PLEASE?!?! AM I MISSING SOMETHING?!?!

Sure it's a bit excessive to say **** like "**** IS THE BRIDGE OK?!", but even then people are free to say what they want. Does Sean Kingston give a crap if you get injured or die?

I'm sorry but I have ZERO pity for reckless show-offs that get what they deserve. At least maybe next time, for another innocent girl or bystander's sake, he won't be such a kamikaze. Let's hope so anyway..

He's young. He was just trying to scare the pants off the young lady, just like we did at that age.
