Kile Glover, the son of Tameka Foster, was taken off life support this morning. A friend of Kile’s family confirmed to Channel 2 Action News that he had passed at 9 a.m. Saturday. Doctor’s determined he would not recover from the injuries he sustained in the accident.
Kile Glover, was declared brain dead after being critically injured when he and a and a 15-year-old girl were hit by a jet ski while while water tubing at Lake Lanier in Georgia. Kile was unresponsive after the accident and the girl also suffered from several injuries. Both were airlifted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egelston Hospital. Since the accident on July 8, Kile has been on on life support.
The man on the personal watercraft was identified as Jeffrey S. Hubbard of Atlanta, according to an incident report obtained by the AJC. Hubbard and the children tubing were part of the same group on an outing at the lake.
Grammy award winning singer Usher, whose real name is Usher Raymond, reportedly has remained close to his former wife and her family during the ordeal. He was also in the middle of a bitter custody battle with Foster over their two sons when the accident happened but has since softened some of the demands.
Once he learned of the tragedy, Usher chartered a plane so that Tameka could fly and be with her son. He visited the boy in early July, and is really “torn up”over the ordeal.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families.
