MIAMI (AP) - A publicist for Sean Kingston says the hip-hop singer is in critical but stable condition after crashing his watercraft into a Miami Beach bridge.

Joseph Carozza provided an update on the singer's condition Tuesday. He says the singer's family is asking for privacy while acknowledging how grateful they are for the prayers and support from Kingston's fans.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission spokesman Jorge Pino says the 21-year-old singer and a female passenger were injured Sunday afternoon when their watercraft hit the Palm Island Bridge.

Both were hospitalized at Ryder Trauma Center in Miami.

A number of hip-hop musicians were in Miami Beach over Memorial Day weekend for Urban Beach Week.
