Usher's Stepson

Investigation Into Accident Underway

The Department of Natural Resource in Atlanta is investigating the accident that left Kyle Glover, stepson of R&B star Usher in critical condition ... an investigation which could take months to complete.

As TMZ first reported, the 11-year-old was struck in the head by a jet ski while riding in an inner tube on Lake Lanier. He was rushed to a nearby hospital and remains there in critical condition.

Robin Hill, a rep for the Department of Natural Resources (Wildlife Resources Division), tells TMZ the department's Critical Incident Response Team will recreate the accident on the lake to help determine what happened. Using special computer programs, they will attempt to figure out how fast the boats were going at the time of the accident.

Hill says that rangers have been in touch with the driver of the jet ski and remain in contact with him. Once the department completes their investigation, they will turn their recommendation over to the district attorney who would then decide whether or not to file charges.

Last summer, 11 people died on Lake Lanier.

It's a dangerous place.

This child was left brain dead and will likely die, there damn well better be charges filed against the idiot jet skier. If the jetskier is not charged then the DA should lose his or her job.

When towing anything or anybody behind a boat.. YOU NEED a Spotter..... do the speed limits.. and other boaters should know enough to stay well behind and off to the side.... Neon life jackets work well too. im not sure why they are mostly blue... sad day for everyone involved.

So tragic is a lost life, and tragic that this person who struck Kyle will live with forever. I know that feeling after nearly striking a young boy myself with my boat after he was thrown into the water in a jet ski collision leaving one dismembered. Visit www.swimmingbuddy.com folks and see what I designed to make those in the water more visisble to water craft operators, accidents may be prevented with more VISIBILITY.
