Kile Glover (March 29, 2001 – July 21, 2012)

Kile Glover was the son of Tameka Foster and an Atlanta TV executive Ryan Glover. At the time of the accident and his death, Foster was married to R&B singer Usher though the couple was in the middle of a custody battle over the sons they had together during their relationship. On July 6, 2012, Glover and some family friends were playing on an inner tube that was being pulled behind a pontoon boat on Lake Lanier when a man on a jet ski ran over Glover and a 15-year-old friend. Glover was unresponsive when pulled from the lake. Both he and the teenager were flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. He never regained consciousness due to head injuries and died July 21, 2012 after being taken off life support. (The teenage girl also injured in the accident was treated for a cut on the head and a broken arm and released from hospital. Glover was also wearing a life preserver at the time of the accident.) Glover was 11 years old at the time of his death.
