Usher is facing a terrifying family emergency as his oldest son is in ICU following a pool accident Monday.
TMZ.com reports that Usher Raymond V nearly drowned in his father’s pool yesterday evening while splashing around with his aunt. The 5-year-old boy dove to retrieve a toy in a drain; when his arm got stuck, the aunt tried to pull him out. When she couldn’t free him, the maid tried to get him loose.
They started screaming for help when neither of them could save him from the drain, and that’s when two men working at the house were finally able to get him out of the pool. Usher V was immediately given CPR and rushed to the hospital.
Doctors are running tests on Usher V, but they say the boy should be fine.
Usher V is the singer’s oldest son with Tameka Foster, who lost her son Kile Glover after a tragic jetski accident over the July 4th holiday. Both Usher and Tameka are at the hospital with their son now.
