ATLANTA -- A source has confirmed that Kyle Glover, 11, is brain
dead following a collision on Lake Lanier Friday. Glover is the stepson
of popular recording artist Usher.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is investigating the
accident that resulted in serious injury to Glover and a 15-year-old
Kyle Glover, whose mom is the singer's ex-wife, Tameka Foster, was sitting with a 15-year-old girl in the inner tube, which was being pulled along by a boat.
Both were life-flighted to Children's Healthcare at Egelston Hospital.
According to DNR Sgt. Mike Burgamy, a boat was pulling the two
victims on an inner tube, while a 38-year-old man with the group was
driving a jet ski in the same area.
The jet ski collided with the tube.
The accident happened on the south end of the lake near Van Pugh Park.
Burgamy says it is too early to tell if any charges will be filed, and that alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
Usher's famous friends are tweeting their concern. Writes Russell Simmons:
"Praying that Usher and Tameka's son is ok... "
Echoed Fantasia Barrino: "Everyone PLEASE pray for Usher and Tameka's son! This is the time they really need your prayers!"
