Citing sources, TMZ reported that Tameka Raymond can only keep her son, 11, on life-support as long as her insurance company agrees to pay, otherwise she doesn't have the funds to cover the enormous hospital bills.

He has been on life support since a July 6 accident that also injured a female friend, 15. A family friend reportedly ran into the two youths wth a jet ski at Lake Lanier, while the youths were in an inner tube being pulled by a pontoon boat.

Glover reportedly sustained severe head injuries. Jeffrey S. Hubbard, has been identified as the driver. No charges have been filed in the case, and alcohol is not believed to be a factor.

This matter comes not long after .

Patch will have more coverage of this incident.

Wait a minute, are you telling me that between Usher's millions and the millions of supporters who are following this story and would be happy to contribute, that we are to blame the insurance company and a "lack of money" for this decision? Yes, this is a sad situation, but the reality is that this young man was declared brain dead almost immediately after the accident. So to claim that this end of life decision was in some way made by the insurance company is disingenuous at best.

I would have to agree with Jake. This is such a tragic story, but reports have stated that this child is brain dead. If this is the case, then he should be taken off life support. As for the money, there is no way that money would keep this child from getting the medical care necessary for a recovery. In this sad situation though, the doctors (and the insurance company) are saying that no recovery is possible.
