Usher’s 11-year-old stepson, Kyle Glover, has died of injuries sustained in a jet ski accident earlier this month in Atlanta, Georgia. Glover, who had been declared brain dead after the accident, died on Saturday morning after doctors removed him from life support, determining that his injuries were too severe to overcome. Kyle Glover had been declared brain dead by doctors within days after being admitted to hospital in critical condition. A 15-year-old female friend also suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Glover and the girl had been floating on inner tubes in Georgia’s Lake Lanier when they were stuck by a passing jet ski.
Georgia officials identified the jet ski’s driver as Jeffrey S. Hubbard, reportedly a family friend. He has not been charged with a crime, but an investigation into the incident continues and will determine if charges should be brought.
“We know God’s in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time,” the Glover family said in a statement.
