The entire family has been keeping Kile lifted in prayer while holding vigil at Egleston Childrens hospital, where Kile has been since last Friday, when he was involved in a freak jet ski accident while floating on a raft on Lake Lanier.
As you know, Tameka and I haven’t always seen eye to eye but in times like this there is no room for shade or discourse. Regardless of how you feel about Tameka and/or Usher Raymond, some things are just off limits.
That being said, while there are rumors swirling that Kile was considered “brain dead,” no one in the family is willing to claim that diagnosis.
The family issued a brief official statement recently confirming that all is not lost and they are NOT giving up hope…
We know God’s in control, and are leaning on our faith in Him and His word at this most difficult time.
We firmly believe in the power of prayer and ask that you all continue to pray and lift Kile up, as it’s the best way we can all support him now.
Citing unnamed sources,TMZ was the first to report that Kile was brain dead after he and a 15 year old girl where hit by a jet ski while they were tubing on the lake.
Accuracy of the reports of Kile being “brain dead” have not been confirmed by the family and officials have declined to speak publicly about the child’s condition, citing privacy concerns.
The previously unidentified 15-year-old girl who was also injured in the accident, is the daughter of a friend of Toya Wright’s, who tweeted the following photo of the teen yesterday.
Jordan reportedly suffered a broken arm and a laceration on her head in the accident and is also being treated at Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta.
As far as the driver of the jet ski, it was a family friend, 38 year old Jeffrey Hubbard who was behind the wheel.
No charges have been brought against Hubbard in the accident and authorities say alcohol was not a factor.
Hubbard and the children tubing were part of the same group on an outing at the lake.
Just FYI – Kile’s father, Ryan Glover is a former executive of Turner Broadcasting. He is now president of Bounce TV, a new African-American television network. Creators and investors of the network include former United Nations ambassador and Atlanta mayor Andrew Young, Martin Luther King III and Rainforest Films’ founders Will Packer and Rob Hardy.
Let’s all continue to keep Kile and Jordan lifted in prayer in hopes that they will each make a full recovery from this unfortunate incident.
