R&B star Usher's son Usher Raymond V is in intensive care following an accident in the family's swimming pool.
TMZ reports that the 5-year-old got his arm stuck in the pool's drain while trying to retrieve a toy on Monday afternoon (August 5).
Usher was not home at the time and the child was reportedly in the care of his aunt. The aunt and a maid tried to free Usher Raymond V, but it was only after two work men who happened to be at the property stepped in that the boy was able to be freed.
One of the men performed CPR and little Usher was rushed to the intensive care unit of an Atlanta hospital.
Billboard states that according to a police report, the boy was "conscious, alert and breathing" when paramedics arrived, and Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster are now by his side at the hospital.
Just last year, tragedy struck the family when Tameka's 11-year-old son (Usher's step-son) Kile Glover was struck by a Jet Ski while swimming in a lake in Atlanta. He later died after being taken off life support.
TMZ is now reporting that Foster has filed legal documents asking for an emergency hearing to discuss the custody arrangements of Usher Raymond V and his younger brother Naviyd.
The former couple have previously engaged in a fierce custody battle over their sons which resulted in Usher having primary custody and Tameka having limited custodial rights.
