Here is what one news station in Atlanta is saying about this.

Investigators said the children were being towed on an inner tube by a rented pontoon boat when someone in their party on a rented Jet Ski hit them.

Hall County Fire Chief David Kimbrell told Channel 2's Mark Winne an 11-year-old boy was flown to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston in critical condition with head injuries.

Officials said the boy was unresponsive at the scene of the accident.

News Chopper 2 showed a second victim, a 15-year-old girl, being moved from an ambulance in a parking lot and loaded onto a helicopter ambulance. The girl was also flown to Egleston as well.

Officials initially described her condition as stable but the girl’s condition started to deteriorate so they airlifted her to the hospital.

Channel 2's Michael Buczyner later found out the girl had a broken arm and a laceration on her head.

The person driving the Jet Ski was a 38-year-old Atlanta resident, Winne reported.

Two Department of Natural Resource rangers witnessed the crash and helped rescue one child. A nearby boater rescued the second child. Officials said alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash.

Oh my lord. Hit in the head by a jet ski. I am not going to think the worst for this kid. He is 11 years old and being that young could get him through this horrible accident. My prayers go out to him.

Never believed what Tameka was saying about Usher and I thought they were divorced but Tameka was fighting with him to get sole custody of the kids she had by him?

Wow, can't believe that's them, they reported this yesterday, the boy was hit in the head, has a brain injury, and another girl around his age was also lifted to hospital and in serious condition. There was just a bunch of kids on the tube, the jet ski person was a friend of the family. Can't people figure out that jet skis don't stop the way cars do???!!! Idiots. The guy on the jet ski was 28 or 38, don't remember which one, but a grow person...

She probably pulled a munchausen by proxy to get Usher to talk to her crazy psychotic ass. Those poor kids.

This is how child-deaths are typically reported.


They tell you there's been a bad accident.


To please come to the hospital right away.


Where you're given the-worst-possible-news.


So that a-support-staff can be on hand.

Wow ...    

My hope is the child is okay. Kudos to Usher for getting the mother there, regardless of the court issues. Major respect! Is another child was involved...well may they all be okay.

I was jetskiing with my son on Lanier the same day this happened. (Usher is also a neighbor who lives close to me). We had two other kids killed on Lanier a few weeks before .. tragic!
