Jimmy Vega, one of the Good Samaritans who rescued Sean Kingston Sunday, has described the horrific scene he and his friends encountered.

Vega and pals were in a boat and approaching Palm Island Bridge when they saw that a jet ski had just crashed and people were in the water.

They immediately jumped in to save them. Kingston was "extremely dazed," says Vega and had come partly out of his life vest.  "He was in danger of drowning," the 34-year-old student said.

Kingston's female passenger from the jet ski was securely in her life vest and floating nearby, but also seemed to be going in and out of consciousness.

Vega described Kingston has having a severe gash on his neck and bleeding profusely.

Vega and one of his friends -- who amazingly is a member of the Coast Guard -- kept Kingston afloat and then got the singer and his friend on to a rescue boat.

They were both transported to the hospital.

Jorge Pino, spokesman for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission tells that alcohol was not a factor in the crash.  "One of our officers on scene went straight to the hospital where they established that," he says.

"We don't know what happened yet or the circumstances leading up to the accident," Pino adds. "We will know soon. We don't know if there were any witnesses to the accident itself but we have the information from the person that pulled them out the water."

"We regularly patrol the water to insure people are operating their vessels in a safe manner and that they have the proper safety equipment on board."

Kingston is now being treated in the Intensive Care Unit at Jackson Memorial Hospital.
