Sean Kingston Recovers From Jet Ski Accident
Sean Kingston is lucky to be alive. In May, Kingston, 21, suffered near-fatal injuries while jet skiing in Miami. “I think my work is not done," he told the Today Show. "I think it feels like I need more time here.”
Last Memorial Day Kingston left a party at his Miami home to go for a jet-ski ride. He, along with a female companion, were thrown from the water craft when Kingston attempted to break before hitting a bridge. His companion was not hurt, but after being pulled from the water by a nearby rescuer, Kingston was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.
After 11 days it appeared Kingston was fully recovered and he was pulled off a respirator, but he began to feel pain in his chest. The doctors immediately had to perform open-heart surgery on Kingston to mend a torn aorta — a very risky procedure. “I had a lot of pain,” said Kingston. “When we went to go visit my surgeon he told me, ‘You had a guardian angel that day.’ ”
Kingston recently surprised fans when he appeared on stage at a stop on the Britney Spears/Nicki Minaj "Femme Fatale" tour. He was also seen joyriding with his friend and collaborator, Justin Bieber, in Kingston's Rolls Royce. Sunday Kingston received a standing ovation from the audience of the Teen Choice Awards moments before he presented Bieber with the award for Choice Male Artist. "I'm doing great. I'm excited to be at the Teen Choice Awards," Kingston told MTV. "I'm feeling good; I'm feeling blessed."
