Usher's Son Rushed to Hospital After Near Pool Drowning

by at . Comments

Usher Raymond V, the oldest of Usher's two sons with ex-wife Tameka Foster, was rushed to the hospital yesterday after nearly drowning in the artist's pool.

Sources confirm to TMZ that Usher was not home at the time of the accident.

But the five-year old was being supervised by his aunt when he dove to get a toy near the pool's drain. His arm got stuck, the aunt and a maid both jumped in to rescue the child, but neither were successful.

Fortunately, two other employees were finally able to free the toddler and apply CPR.

He was taken to the hospital and currently resides in the ICU, where physicians are running tests and where it's believed he'll be okay.

Usher and Tameka are at their son's bedside, a development eerily similar to last year when Tameka's son Kile passed away after a jet skiing accident.

We wish Usher and his family nothing but the best.
