Usher’s 11-year-old stepson passed away last year after getting into a jet ski accident, and today his family is faced with another hardship. The singer’s 5-year-old son is currently in the ICU at a hospital in Atlanta after a serious pool accident.
TMZ reports that Usher Raymond V tried to retrieve a toy that was stuck in the singer’s pool on Sunday evening and got his arm stuck in the drain. The little boy’s aunt was with him and immediately dove in to help, but was unable to remove his hand.
After a further failed attempt by the maid to free Usher V, two men who were working in the house jumped into the water and got him out. CPR was immediately given and 911 was called. Usher, who wasn’t home at the time the accident occurred, arrived and rode in the ambulance with his son.
Despite the frightening accident, doctors say that Usher V will be thankfully be okay.
