JUST IN: Tameka Speaks + Family Friend Investigated for Jet Ski Accident That Left Usher’s Stepson Brain Dead!

Filed under : Africa

Our heart goes out Tameka Foster, Usher’s ex wife and the entire family.

Kyle is a baby (11-years-old) and hearing about this accident was so heart-wrenching we could not report it initially.

According to Radar Online, Tameka Foster, gave a short statement to expressing the dire situation:

“He’s bad”

According to The New York Daily News:

Family friend Jeffrey S. Hubbard of Atlanta is under investigation for the Friday afternoon collision with the 11-year-old boy who was riding in an inner tube on Georgia’s Lake Lanier.

“Basically, a pontoon was pulling two juveniles on an inner tube, and the watercraft ran over the top of them,” Sgt. Mike Burgamy with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources told The News.

He said two of his rangers witnessed what appeared to be a tragic accident.

Alcohol was not a factor, and investigators do not believe it was a mechanical malfunction, he said.

Both young victims – the other being an unidentified 15-year-old girl – were wearing life jackets, he said.

The girl’s face was submerged when she was plucked from the lake by rescuers, but the boy’s face remained above water the entire time, he said, so his injuries did not involve partial drowning.

“One minute the jet ski was running around, the next he ran over the top of them. It happened that quickly,” he said. “It appears the watercraft did strike both juveniles, with the male taking the brunt of the force.”

Both victims were airlifted to Child’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. A hospital spokeswoman declined to discuss the case.
