The boy was knocked unconscious and was rushed to the hospital. He never woke up. He passed away two weeks later.
Hubbard "pleaded not guilty to homicide by vessel in the first degree, not guilty to charges of reckless operation of a vessel, unlawful operation of a personal watercraft, boat traffic violation and serious injury by vessel".
After the accident, Kile's mother and Usher's ex Tameka Raymond tweeted this:
Our goal to to increase water safety- thru implementing laws, policies & education. Kiles passing will not be in vain, we will see to this.
