Things went from bad to worse for Kyle Glover, Usher’s 11-year old stepson. After a tragic jet ski accident left the youngster in critical condition on Friday, doctors have now declared him brain dead.
TMZ is reporting that Glover, who is the son of Usher’s ex-wife, Tameka Foster, has not experienced any brain activity since he was admitted into the hospital two days ago. According to reports, the pre-teen and a friend were floating in inner tubes on Lake Lanier in Atlanta when they were struck by a man on a jet ski. Glover was unresponsive when he was taken out of the water and airlifted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston; his friend, an unidentified 15-year old girl, was treated for a cut on the head and a broken arm.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources said that alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor in the accident and the newspaper also reported that the man on the jet ski and Glover were a part of the same group on an outing at the lake.
