Jetski's should be banned within a certain mile radius of those on innertubes & general populated areas, especially those with children .. the same for boats.
This accident could have been avoided.

My heart goes out to this family but Tameka, after you bury your son .. focus on NOT TAKING USHER to court!! Appreciate what you have & spend time with your kids. Usher has stepped up and helped you through this tragedy..be more appreciative.

Every mother's nightmare. I am so sorry to see that this little boy couldn't somehow rally a bit. I would have done the same thing - wait a while to be 100% sure that my child was truly beyond all hope before removing life support. My heart goes out to the family. Such a tragedy.
