More details surrounding singer Sean Kingston's jet ski accident have surfaced. The previously unnamed female passenger, who reportedly walked away from the crash with minor injuries, has identified herself and is sharing details of what happened. 

 

According to TMZ, the young woman, longtime friend Cassandra Sanchez, said that the accident happened so fast she barely knows what happened. Sanchez recalls sitting on the ride with Kingston and the singer's friend manning another jet ski with a female passenger. "Both jet skis pulled out the dock at the same time and we were going so fast we just blasted past them [their friends]," she said. "When we turned a corner and crashed…they were so far behind us they didn't even see us crash." 

 

Sanchez says she saw the low clearance of the bridge and called out to warn Kingston, who was navigating, "We can't fit under there! Are we going to try and go under there? Sean, stop!" 

 

The next thing the 23 year-old woman remembers is waking up in the water. Friends on the another jet ski came to their aid and flagged down a nearby boater for help. 

 

Although Sanchez said she woke up in pain, Kingston was much worse: "[Sean] was coughing up blood, foam and pink stuff." 

 

As previously reported, the "Beautiful Girls' singer remains in critical condition, but it's been reported that his condition has stabilized. Alcohol has been ruled out as a factor in the accident.
