Usher’s 5-year-old  son, Usher Raymond V, has been hospitalized following a swimming pool accident.

According to TMZ,

The child was playing in the pool with his aunt and saw a toy in the drain.  He dove down to get the toy and his arm got stuck in the drain.  The aunt immediately dove in to rescue him but couldn’t get his hand out.  The maid then dove in and tried but was also unsuccessful.

The maid screamed for help.  Two men working in the house came out, dove in and freed the boy.  He was given CPR immediately and rushed to the hospital.  Usher arrived and drove in the ambulance with his son.

5-year-old Usher Raymond V is the oldest of Usher’s two sons with ex-wife Tameka Raymond. We’re told Usher and Tameka are currently at the hospital.

Doctors have been running a series of tests and doctors say he’ll be ok.

We’re keeping the family in our prayers. We pray everything turns out alright.

This is the second water-related accident to happen in Usher’s family. Tameka Raymond’s 11-year-old son Kile from a previous relationship passed away last year from injuries sustained during a jet ski accident.

UPDATE: Currently Usher has primary custody of both kids and Tameka has limited custodial rights.

Sources confirm exclusively to that Tameka Raymond had already begun to modify custody after Usher was awarded primary. The timing of the incident in context of what was already happening is purely coincidental. It’s being reported that as of right now Tameka has been granted an emergency custody hearing pertaining to the former couple’s two sons.
