This is incredibly sad. My prayers go out to the family during this trying time. Didn't I read in the article yesterday, that the driver was of friend of the family? You guys are so inaccurate and inconsistent.

how will this effect the custody hearing? if the child were in usher's care at the time of the accident, her lawyers would have used that to show him to be an inept parent. . . . she is still a manipulating, money grubbing, chicken head--who--if the rumors are correct, left her dead child father to marry usher--but was it love or just the potential for fame and $$ that she felt?

Death of a frolicking child is always a tragedy, But lets get the facts prior to hanging the jet ski operator. Accidents do happen, not all is neglegence. although sounds like a bad mix, of swimmers and motorized crafts.

When this story first broke it was mentioned that Kyle was on a tube being towed by a boat. There are also safety rules the boats operator must follow especially when a someone is in the water. So, we need to hear the FACTS before making assumptions.

Last night I saw a retweet of Halle Berry offering condolences and thought - "That was nice of her" And then I noticed she sent condolences on the death of "Ryan". *wince* *cringe*

"suffered from a jet ski accident"
"could lead to more serious charges against the driver of the jet ski"
I had a boat at Lake Tenkiller for years. Jet skis, innertubes behind boats all over the place.
You COULD get me on a jet ski at times. But you WOULD NEVER get me on an innertube going in circles.
Sorry for the loss, but innertube pulling SHOULD BE ILLEGAL on lakes.
Innertubes belong going down a stream like a canoe.

asdf, you can't be serious! Did you not read the past stories about Kyle's condition when he first arrived to the hospital? Usher's wallet was of no use!

Although Kyle is probably the more common spelling, all of the reports spell this child's name "Kile".
