Singer Usher's 11-year-old stepson was recently hurt in a deadly jet-ski accident and has been declared brain dead.
Everyone is praying for Usher's 11-year-old son to regain consciousness, as the boy is now fighting for his life. The boy's name is Kyle Glover and he is Usher's ex-wife's son. Glover's mother, Tameka Foster, was Usher's wife, but they got divorced and now live separately.
The incident took place on Sunday, when Glover went for a swim with his other young friends and a family member. The accident took place on Atlanta's Lake Lanier as the boy floated there wearing an inner tube. Another 15-year-old girl was also floating with Glover and all of a sudden, a jet-ski came and hit the two of them.
Help arrived immediately after the jet-ski hit the two kids and they were brought to the land. Kyle Glover was hit in the head by the watercraft and got seriously injured. The girl also sustained major injuries and both of them were rushed to the hospital. On arriving there, doctors quickly responded to the emergency situation, but Glover was soon declared brain dead and it is not clear yet whether he will be able to survive. There has been no decision yet on whether Glover will be taken off life support.
The police are investigating the incident and it is being said that the entire investigation may take months. The use of alcohol by the jet-ski driver has been ruled out. The man driving the jet-ski is part of the group with which children went to the lake.
Investigating officers and the Department of Wildlife Resources are going to recreate the entire scene based on the evidence and witness accounts they will receive and only then will be able to come up with exact details. Based on those details, Usher can choose to press charges on the man who is responsible for the accident.
Usher is deeply saddened. Even though he and Foster are divorced, he is standing by his ex-wife's side. He sent a private jet to bring her to the hospital. Both Usher and Foster are at the hospital by Glover's side.
