Usher’s Son Hospitalized After Pool Accident

Usher and sons

Usher’s son Usher Raymond V has been hospitalized after an accident in the singer’s pool on Monday.

Sources tell TMZ that the incident occurred around 2 p.m. The five-year-old was rushed to the ICU at an Atlanta hospital. Usher was not home at the time.

The child was playing in the pool with his aunt and saw a toy in the drain. He swam to retrieve the toy and his arm got caught. The aunt immediately dove in, but couldn’t free his hand. The maid then jumped in the pool and tried but was also unsuccessful.

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

The child’s lungs reportedly filled with water and he underwent some form of resuscitation. Doctors have run a series of tests and it seems like he’s doing fine at this time.

Usher Raymond V, who Usher calls Cinco, is the oldest of Usher’s two sons with ex-wife Tameka Raymond. Both parents are currently at the hospital.

Usher’s 11-year-old stepson Kile passed away last year from injuries sustained in a jet ski accident.

    [...] Usher was not at home when the incident happened. Instead, an aunt was home watching the boy who’s father calls, Cinco when he saw a toy in the family’s pool and fell in. Cinco’s arm got stuck in a pipe, and immediately the aunt dove in, couldn’t free his arm – a maid dove in, couldn’t free him – two other men working in the house heard the maid’s screams, came and was able to free the young boy’s arm. CPR was done on the little guy, and he was then rushed to the hospital. Reportedly, Cinco is doing okay. Get well, buddy! [via] [...]

    I LIKE USHER, BUT IF THIS MAN CAN NOT FIND PROFESSIONALS TO CARE FOR HIS CHILD THAT HAVE LIFE GUARD TRAINING HE NEEDS TO STOP HAVING SWIMMING POOLS AT HIS HOMES- IS HE THAT IMMATURE AND STUPID THAT HE KEEPS TRUSTING UNSKILLED PEOPLE TO WATCH HIS ‘PRECIOUS KIDS’. HE IS TAKING BETTER CARE OF HIS TALENT FINDS AND YOUTHFUL CLIENTS, HE HAS ENOUGH MONEY- MAYBE HE SHOULD TAKE A ‘REAL VACATION’ FROM ‘HUSTLING WANNABE STARS AND STARLETS ANS BE ‘A REAL FATHER WHO DOES NOT HAVE TO RELY ON DIMWITS AND HYSTERICAL RELATIVES AND HANDY MAN HEROICS TO
    PRESERVE HIS SONS’ LIVES. WHERE’S THERE DARN GRANDMOTHER OR SOMEONE WITH SOME COMMON SENSE, EXPERIENCE, AND LIFE GUARD/MEDICAL TRAINING- GETTING THEIR LIFE INSURANCE IS NOT GOING TO COMPENSATE FOR ‘DEAD SONS’ GORY LEGACY/DRAMA.

    It’s unfortunate, but it’s no one’s fault.

    This is maybe harsh but the way that Usher played tameka like she was such a bad parent and horriable person was really wrong. I feel that even though she hates him that doesnt mean that she hates the kids. now he has full custody and was no where to be found when his child almost drowned.

    @ggee, Who said he was no where to be found. He was around close enough to have gotten in the ambulance with the boy. Accidents happen.

    Some of you are just…

    It was accident. No need to punish children and take away the fun of a swimming pool because of it. Stop being dramatic.
