Kile Glover, stepson of Usher and biological child of ex-wife Tameka Foster, passed away Saturday morning from injuries caused by a jet ski accident in Georgia earlier this month.
Declared brain dead two days after the accident on July 6, the family struggled to remove the boy from life support hoping that he would recover. When it was determined that the injuries were too severe to overcome, doctors removed the 11-year-old from life support.
“We know God’s in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time,” the family told CNN in a statement weeks ago. “We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it’s the best way we can all support him now.”
Glover and a second victim, a 15 year-old girl, were struck by a Jet Ski while floating on an inner tube in Atlanta’s Lake Lanier. While the girl is reported to have suffered from a cut on the head and a broken arm, Glover suffered serious trauma to his head.
While the man driving the jet ski has been identified as family friend Jeffrey S. Hubbard, the police have determined that no drugs were involved and no charges are being pressed. (SOURCE)
