FAME FILES: Usher's Five-Year-Old Son Hospitalized After Freak Pool Accident: Report

Usher’s five-year-old son was rushed to the intensive care unit of an Atlanta hospital after a horrific swimming pool accident.

Usher Raymond V nearly drowned after getting his arm wedged into drain of the family swimming pool 6 p.m. Monday evening, TMZ reported.

The child’s aunt and maid had tried unsuccessfully to free the child, who had been trying to retrieve a toy that fell into the drain, before a pair of workmen managed to free the boy, sources told the gossip web site.

He was reportedly given CPR and taken by ambulance to the hospital, with Usher accompanying his son.

Though the boy is still in the hospital, doctors expect a full recovery.

The boy’s mother and Usher's ex-wife, Tameka Foster, is currently at the hospital at her son’s bedside, according to TMZ.
