ATLANTA (WAOK)-The funeral for Kile Glover the step son of singer Usher Raymond will be Friday.  11-year-old Glover was critically injured after being run over by a personal watercraft on Lake Lanier on July 6.

Glover died over the weekend following the accident. He was the son of Atlanta television executive Ryan Glover and Tameka Foster, who was previously married to Usher.

According to the AJC, Kile’s funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Friday at Wieuca Road Baptist Church on Peachtree Road in Atlanta.  Willie Watkins Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Kile, who was wearing a life preserver, and a teenage friend were on an inner tube being pulled behind a pontoon boat during an outing with friends and family members, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

A family friend, identified by DNR as Jeffrey S. Hubbard of Atlanta, ran over the inner tube while operating a rented personal watercraft, leaving Kile in critical condition. Hubbard could face criminal charges, according to DNR.

Kile and a 15 year old friend were flown to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston. The teen was later released.
