Sean Kingston says doctors had to perform open heart surgery on him after his Memorial Day weekend jet ski crash -- calling the experience a "life or death situation."

Kingston just sat down for an MTV First special and told Sway Calloway ... when he was being released from the hospital, docs discovered a heart condition that required immediate surgery.

Kingston explains, "I had open heart surgery and I had two other surgeries ... it was a life or death situation."

King says he's now back to "100%" -- and compares the former Marine who pulled him out of the water to an angel ... saying, "It was just like an angel in the sky." Kingston says he's emailed his hero and plans to meet up with the guy in the near future.

Kingston spent 23 days in the hospital after his Memorial Day weekend crash in Miami -- where, along with the heart issues, he was treated for a shattered wrist, broken ribs and water inhalation.

He EMAILED the guy who saved him? This confirms what a d*ck this guy is. Accused of rape, reckless endangerment with another woman, violating the environmental safety laws in the harbor, and I'm sure there's plenty of other incidents people don't know about. Lock him up.

It was actually not a Marine who saved him. It was a member of the Coast Guard. Two completely different things.

But I'm glad he's doing better!
