TMZ is reporting that global superstar Usher Raymond’s five-year-old son is in ICU following an incident at the singer’s pool.
According to TMZ, the five-year-old boy, Usher Raymond V, was playing in the pool with a relative and saw a toy in the drain. He dove down to grab the toy, but his arm got caught in the drain. Noticing the delay in Usher Raymond V’s return, the relative also dove into the pool in an attempt to rescue him. After the relative’s failed attempts to get the boy’s hand out of the drain, the singer’s maid dove into the pool to assist and was also unsuccessful.
The maid’s screams for help prompted two men who were working inside the singer’s home to come out and save the boy. He was immediately given CPR and rushed to a local hospital. Usher arrived at the home and rode in the ambulance with his son. Doctors have been running a series of tests on the boy and believe he will be OK.
Usher Raymond V is the eldest of Usher Raymond’s two sons. The children’s mother, Tameka Raymond, is reportedly at the hospital with Usher Raymond and Usher Raymond V. The incident occurs slightly a year after Tameka lost her 11-year-old son Kile Glover to a jet skit accident on a lake.
