Kile Glover (aka Kyle Glover), son of stylist Tameka Foster and Atlanta clothier Ryan Glover, is in critical condition after a jet ski accident at Lake Lanier in Atlanta Georgia. He is also the stepson to R&B Singer Usher (aka Usher Raymond) and Marsha Chin-Glover.
(Usher Raymond and Tameka Foster were married in August 2007 and divorced in November 2009. They share two birth children together, Usher Raymond V and Naviyd Ely Raymond.)
Kile Glover, age 11, and an unidentified 15 year-old girl were in inner tubes when a 35-year old man riding a jet ski ran into them. (Some accounts say that the inner tubes were tethered to a boat.) Glover was hit in the head during the collision. He was unresponsive when he was taken out of the water. Flight for Life emergency services transported both children to a Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, the man riding the jet ski was a part of the same group that the children were with.
Foster was out of town at the time of the accident. TMZ has reported that Usher chartered a private plane to transport Foster to her son’s bedside.
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is not releasing the names of the 15 year old girl or the 35 year old man. The DNR has issued a statement ruling out alcohol as a contribution factor to the accident. No charges have been filed against the driver of the jet ski.
The family, as well as the agencies involved (DNR, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, etc.), has been very quiet regarding the situation and the current status of the children’s medical conditions. Tweets from family and friends have been picking up speed with prayers of speedy recovery.
