The 11-year-old stepson of singer USHER has been declared brain dead after he and a 15-year-old friend were involved in a boating accident on FRIDAY, the NEW YORK DAILY NEWS reports. A Jet Ski struck KYLE GLOVER and the friend while they were floating on inner tubes in GEORGIA's LAKE LANIER.
GLOVER was struck in the head and was rendered unconscious; the girl also suffered serious injuries. Both children were immediately airlifted to CHILDREN'S HEALTHCARE AT EGELSTON HOSPITAL in ATLANTA.
The cause of the horrific incident is still under investigation, which could take months to complete. The DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES (WILDLIFE RESOURCES DIVISION) will recreate the accident using special computer programs to determine the details.
