Tameka Raymond’s 11 year old son, Kile Glover, was in a terrible jet skiing accident on Friday afternoon at Lake Lanier in Atlanta, leaving him in critical condition according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Kile and a teenaged friend were on an inner tube on a lake when a jet ski being operated by a 38 year old man ran into the tube, knocking Kile and the unnamed 15 year old girl into the water. When emergency workers arrived to the scene, Kile and the young lady were immediately flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Egleston, according to fire chief David Kimbrell. Apparently all three were part of the same group and while no names were officially released by on-site workers, TMZ was able to find out that it was indeed Tameka’s son. Although the man who was operating the jet ski has yet to be named, it appears they were all part of the same group.
Kile was unresponsive when they pulled him from the water after an apparent head injury and was still unresponsive when he arrived at the hospital which rendered his condition as critical. The young lady seems to be much better and is in the hospital under stable condition.
According to TMZ, Tameka was out of town at the time but when Usher heard about the accident he immediately chartered a plane for Tameka to get back home to be by her son’s side. Kile is often described by Tameka on Twitter as her son with the “sweet soul” who is just caring, loving and almost her most helpful son.
Our thoughts are with the family and we hope Kile will make a full recovery.
