Usher and his ex-girlfriend Tameka Foster’s lives turned upside down when their 11-year-old son Kile Glover died in a terrible jet ski accident in Lake Lanier, Georgia.
Now that it’s been 11 years, the mother of one is trying to get the lake drained to stop more people from dying.
The 52-year-old shared the petition on Instagram with a note that said, “On this significant day, July 6, we remember the tragic accident on Lake Lanier that forever altered my life. My courageous son, Kile Glover, fought for two weeks with unwavering strength until his passing on July 21. Today, we honor his memory by rallying together for change.”
Foster said, “Let’s ensure a safer future by demanding improved safety measures, better zoning, and the removal of haunted debris from the lake.
Join me in signing the petition and sharing this vital cause. Together, we can create a fresh start and bring about lasting transformation. JusticeForKile SignForSafety IWILLFIGHTTILTHEENDOFMYDAYS.”
The letter asked that Lake Lanier be drained, cleaned, and fixed up “to ensure the well-being of all individuals engaging in personal watercraft and recreational activities.”
At this point, more than 1,500 people have signed the petition.
On the other hand, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, 14 people have died in Lake Lanier in the first half of 2022. All these deaths were caused by boats, and there have been 67 injuries and 114 incidents.
Since 1956, about 700 people are thought to have died in the lake.
