Kile Glover, 11, was riding with a 15-year-old girl on an inner tube that was being pulled by a pontoon boat in Lake Lanier July 6 when a personal watercraft crashed into the children, according to an accident report from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
Kile suffered a serious head injury and was flown by helicopter to Children’s Healthcare at Egleston in Atlanta.
He died of heart failure Saturday, the sources said, disputing other reports that the child was taken off life support.
The boy’s mother, Tameka Raymond, was married to Usher for two years. They have two children together, ages 3 and 4. They divorced in 2009.
