Usher’s Son Rushed To Hospital After Almost Drowning

Usher and sons

Usher’s son Usher Raymond V has been hospitalized after an accident in the singer’s pool on Monday. Sources tell TMZ that the incident occurred around 2 p.m. The five-year-old was rushed to the ICU at an Atlanta hospital. Usher was not home at the time.

The child was playing in the pool with his aunt and saw a toy in the drain. He swam to retrieve the toy and his arm got caught. The aunt immediately dove in, but couldn’t free his hand. The maid then jumped in the pool and tried but was also unsuccessful.

After the maid screamed for help, two men working in the house came to the rescue and freed the boy. He was given CPR immediately and rushed to the hospital. Usher arrived and drove in the ambulance with his son.

The child’s lungs reportedly filled with water and he underwent some form of resuscitation. Doctors have run a series of tests and it seems like he’s doing fine at this time.

Usher Raymond V, who Usher calls Cinco, is the oldest of Usher’s two sons with ex-wife Tameka Raymond. Both parents are currently at the hospital.

Usher’s 11-year-old stepson Kile passed away last year from injuries sustained in a jet ski accident.
