Usher’s son Usher Raymond V, 5, is the ICU at an Atlanta hospital this morning after suffering a serious accident in the singer’s pool last night.

According to TMZ, the horrible accident happened around 6:00PM last night when Usher was not home.

Apparently the boy was swimming in his pool with his aunt, when the youngster saw a toy stuck in the drain. He dove down to grab the toy and his arm got stuck in the drain. The aunt immediately went down to rescue him, but couldn’t free his arm. The maid then also tried to save the boy, but couldn’t free him. The maid screamed for help, and two men who were working on the home came out, dove in and freed the boy. They gave him CPR and rushed him to the hospital. By time the ambulance arrived, Usher was home, and rode with his son to the hospital.

Usher Raymond V is the oldest of Usher’s two sons with ex-wife Tameka Raymond. Both Usher and Tameka are at the hospital now. Doctors determined that the boy should be okay, thank God.

This is the second water-related tragedy for the family. Tameka’s 11-year-old son form a previous relationship was killed last year following a jet skiing accident.
