Sean Kingston is making moves towards recovery following his catastrophic jet-ski accident over the Memorial Day weekend.

Although doctors stated that it would take up to six months for a full recovery, sources close to Kingston have revealed that he is alert and awake. TMZ is reporting that despite having a breathing tube in his mouth, Kingston is improving daily by communicating with head nods and using sign language.

Kingston crashed his brand new jet ski into a bridge near Miami's Star Island last Saturday (May 28). After being thrown from the watercraft, he fell into the water where he was saved by a stranger, who noted that he was spitting up blood but was coherent. He was later airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center at Miami's Jackson Memorial Hospital.
