Yesterday (July 7th), Usher’s stepson Kyle Glover, 11, and an unidentified 15-year old female were riding in an inner tube being pulled by a boat in Lake Lanier when a 38-year-old man riding a jet-ski hit them, reports TMZ. Sources reported that when paramedics arrived he was unresponsive and they were both rushed to an Atlanta’s Children’s Hospital.
We’re sad to report that Glover, the son of Tameka Foster, Usher’s estranged wife has officially been pronounced brain dead by doctors after experiencing no brain activity since the accident occurred. The family is currently deciding whether or not to take Glover off of life support.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources has confirmed that alcohol was not a factor of the accident and the 38-year-old man riding the jet-ski was a part of Glover’s group on the outing.
Even though court proceedings for divorce are still under way, Usher immediately chartered a plane for Tameka Foster so that she could be by her son’s side when he heard of the incident.TMZ reports that Foster was very grateful for Usher’s act of generosity.
According to TMZ, the Department of Natural Resources (Wildlife Resources Division) has said that their Critical Incident Response Team will run a simulation of the situation on the same lake to determine the speed of the marine vessels and confirm who was at fault and if any charges are to be filed.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Kyle, Tameka and Usher during this difficult time.
