Usher’s oldest son, Usher Raymond V, has been hospitalized in Atlanta, ABC News has confirmed. The 5-year-old was injured while swimming.
According to an incident report, the boy was playing in the pool on Monday evening when his hand got stuck in the drain. (TMZ reported that he had dived down to free a toy that had gotten stuck.) After a relative and a housekeeper were unable to pull him loose, two men who were working on sound equipment in the house heard screaming and successfully intervened.
Afterward, one gave CPR to Usher V and revived him — after which the boy was transported to a hospital “conscious, alert, and breathing.”
The former “Voice” judge, 34, who has two children with ex-wife Tameka Raymond, quickly went to his son’s side.
Last summer, Foster’s 11-year-old son from a former relationship, Kile, died from injuries he sustained in a jet ski accident.
