Usher’s oldest son Usher Raymond V was rushed to an Atlanta hospital yesterday after nearly drowning in a residential swimming pool. The 5-year-old got his arm caught in a drain while swimming with friends.
According to TMZ Usher’s son was trying to get a toy that floated to the bottom of the pool.
The child was 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 in to rescue him but couldn’t get his hand out. The maid then dove in and tried but was also unsuccessful.
Two men who were doing construction on the home came out, dove into the pool and rescued the boy. CPR was administered immediately and he was rushed to the hospital where he was reportedly conscious and alert. Doctors have been running tests and believe that he will be okay.
