Sean Kingston and his passenger Cassandra Sanchez were rushed to the emergency room on Sunday evening after a jet skiing accident where they struck the bridge connecting Palm Island and the MacArthur Causeway in Miami.

"Sean Kingston is now stabilized and has moved from the trauma unit to ICU," the hip hop artist's publicist said in a public statement. "Sean's family thanks everyone for their prayers and support during this time."

According to a CNN report, the "Beautiful Girls" singer who suffered a broken jaw, fractured wrist and water in his lungs, is expected to fully recover in about six weeks.

In an interview with TMZ, Sanchez said Kingston drove their craft "really fast" and added that the singer "tried to turn away from the bridge at the last minute". Sanchez told TMZ that she is okay although her ribs and jaw are still swollen.

Sean Kingston, 21, became popular with his hit single "Beautiful Girls" in 2007 and was also featured on "Eeenie Meenie" with Justin Bieber and in several songs with other artists.
