Usher’s Oldest Son In ICU Following Horrific Pool Accident
Unfortunately, we have some extremely sad news to report on today. The oldest son of R&B singer Usher Raymond, Usher Raymond V is currently being treated in the intensive care unit of a Georgia hospital after he was involved in a serious accident at the singer’s home yesterday evening.
According to TMZ, around 6 p.m. yesterday, 5-year-old Usher was playing in the pool with his aunt when he saw one of his toys in the drain. When he dove down into the pool to get the toy, his arm got stuck in the drain. His aunt quickly acted, diving in after him, but unfortunately, she was unable to get his hand out. Noticing what was happening, the maid also jumped in, hoping to rescue the child, but she was unsuccessful as well. The maid then screamed for help and two men who were working inside of the house reportedly jumped in and were able free him.
The younger Usher was then rushed to the hospital where doctors continue to run tests on him. Although 34-year-old Usher was not home at the time of the incident, he quickly rushed to the scene when he learned of the accident and rode in the ambulance with his son to a nearby hospital. Although the child is still being observed, thankfully, doctors say he will be okay.
