The 11-year-old boy injured while on an inner tube Friday afternoon at Lake Lanier remained in critical condition Monday afternoon. But the outlook is grim for the child, according to various reports.
The boy, identified through social media sites as Kile Glover, is the son of Tameka Foster, the ex-wife of entertainer Usher Raymond, and Atlanta TV executive Ryan Glover.
Citing unnamed sources, various entertainment news websites have reported that Kile is brain dead, but officials have declined to speak publicly about the child’s condition, citing privacy concerns. The boy’s family has also not made any public statements regarding his condition.
Kile and a 15-year-old girl were injured around 3:30 Friday afternoon on Lake Lanier when they were run over by a man on a personal watercraft, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources previously told the AJC. Both victims were flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, with the boy’s injuries being much more serious.
Kile suffered a head injury and was unresponsive when pulled from the lake following the crash, the DNR previously told the AJC.
On Monday, the DNR identified the man on the personal watercraft as Jeffrey S. Hubbard of Atlanta, according to an incident report obtained by the AJC. No charges had been filed against Hubbard late Monday.
