Sean Kingston's condition 'stabilises' after jet skiing accident
Singer is being treated in a Miami hospital after colliding with a bridge yesterday (May 29)
The 21 year-old, along with one other female passenger, was rushed to hospital last night after crashing into a bridge at 6pm local time (11pm BST). His condition was initially described as "critical" by doctors, but has now been downgraded to "stable" after he was transferred from the trauma unit at Jackson Memorial hospital in Miami to the intensive care unit.
The singer's publicist Joseph Carozza issued the following statement about Kingston's condition, "Sean Kingston is now stabilised and has moved from the trauma unit to the intensive care unit. Sean's family thanks everyone for their prayers and support during this time."
Jorge Pino, a spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, which is currently investigating the accident, also revealed more details about Kingston's mishap, telling People Magazine: "Sean was heading west when his personal watercraft collided with the bridge, and he and his female passenger ended up in the water. A good samaritan tended to the two of them until Miami Beach Fire Rescue arrived and saw there were injuries."
Justin Bieber, Nicki Minaj and Rihanna are among those who have tweeted that they are praying for the singer's wellbeing during the day.
