Sean Kingston's camp released heart-warming news today. The "Fire Burning" singer is back on his feet today, according to his rep. This comes following the scary reports of Kingston's Jet-Skiing accident over Memorial Day weekend near Palm Island. Following a daring boat rescue by a Coast Guard member and a friend, he has been receiving treatment at Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital.
From a report by TMZ, "Sean is breathing on his own and walked for the first time this morning."
Up until this point, Kingston was breathing through a tube after arriving in the hospital with water-filled lungs, a broken jaw and fractured wrist. Also included in the rep's update: his condition has been upgraded to serious.
Although he's not out of the woods yet, it's a relief to hear that things are reportedly headed towards a full recovery.
