Scary Moment: Usher's Son in Intensive Care After Pool Accident

Usher's son Usher Raymond V is in the Intensive Care Unit at an Atlanta hospital after an accident in the singer's pool Monday, TMZ reports.

The accident reportedly occurred around 6 p.m. yesterday, while Usher was not at home.



5-year-old Usher Raymond V was reportedly playing in the pool with his aunt and saw a toy in the drain. He dove down to get the toy and his arm got stuck in the drain. The aunt immediately dove down to free him, but couldn't get his hand out. The maid then dove in and tried but was also unsuccessful.

At that point, the maid screamed for help and two men working in the house came out, dove in and successfully freed the boy. He was given CPR and rushed to the hospital. Usher arrived and rode in the ambulance with his son.

Usher Raymond V is the oldest of Usher's two sons with ex-wife Tameka Raymond.

Doctors have been running tests and say he'll be ok.

This is the second water-related accident to strike Usher's family. Last year, Tameka's 11-year-old son Kile passed away from injuries sustained in a jet ski accident.
