Sean Kingston Tweets Again After Jet Ski Crash

Sean Kingston/Twitter(MIAMI) -- Sean Kingston is up and tweeting again after the jet ski crash that left him critically injured over the Memorial Day weekend.

Kingston posted an update to his Twitter feed Sunday night, saying, "Feeling a lot better! GOD IS GREAT! Thanks for all the prayers and support! Love you ALL!"

The 21-year-old singer last tweeted May 29, just hours before he and a female passenger slammed into a Miami Beach bridge while riding that jet ski.  Kingston was hospitalized with a broken jaw, fractured wrist and water in his lungs.  The woman suffered sore ribs and a sore jaw.

Kingston's publicist released a statement earlier this month saying the Jamaican-born artist was breathing on his own and had taken his first steps since the wreck.  Kingston remained in the hospital and was upgraded to serious condition.  E! Online reported he was expected to recover in a few weeks.

In a photo attached to his tweet Sunday night, Kingston is smiling and throwing up the peace sign.

Sean Kingston's Condition Upgraded Following Jet Ski Accident

Alberto E. Rodriguez/Getty Images for Paramount Pictures(MIAMI) -- Just more than a week after a jet ski accident sent Sean Kingston to the trauma unit of a Miami hospital, a spokesperson for the singer says Kingston's condition continues to improve.

"His condition has been upgraded to serious," a Sony Music rep said in a statement Monday. "Sean is breathing on his own and walked for the first time this morning."

Kingston was rushed to Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital the night of May 29 after a personal watercraft he was riding on crashed into a bridge.

According to ABC News affiliate WPLG-TV in Miami, Kingston collided with the bridge that connects Miami Beach's Palm Island to the MacArthur Causeway around 6 p.m. Upon impact, the 21-year-old singer and a female passenger were ejected from the watercraft and landed in the water, said Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission spokesman Jorge Pino.

Both Kingston, who's known for his hits "Beautiful Girls" and "Fire Burning," and the passenger were hospitalized with injuries.

The cause of the crash was not immediately known, but Pino said at the time, "Nothing at this point would indicate that alcohol played a role in this accident."
