Usher's Son In Intensive Care Following Pool Accident

Usher's Son In Intensive Care Following Pool Accident

The five-year-old son of singer Usher is in intensive care after a freak pool accident.

Usher Raymond V was given CPR after he was pulled from a pool at his family home in Atlanta. He reportedly got his hand stuck in an underwater drain trying to get a toy and nearly drowned.

A police incident report says an aunt and a housekeeper were unsuccessful in pulling the victim from the pool drain and he was rescued by a contractor.

Usher, who is a judge on the hit show The Voice, was not at home at the time of the accident.

Pool drains can be notoriously dangerous, especially for children whose limbs are small enough to get sucked in.

Usher Raymond V is the oldest of his two sons with ex-wife, Tameka Raymond. Usher's 11-year old step-son, Kyle was killed last year after a jet ski accident.

Now, tragedy has struck again.
