According to TMZ, Usher's 5-year-old son Usher Raymond V was playing in the pool yesterday at around 6 p.m. when he attempted to retrieve a toy that was stuck in the drain and got his arm caught.

The boy's aunt, who was also in the pool, attempted to free his arm, but was unable to. The maid also tried, but unfortunately wasn't successful in her attempt, either.

After she was unable to free the boy, she screamed for help and two men who were working in the house came to his rescue. After CPR was administered, he was rushed to the hospital, where he remains in intensive care with his mother (Tameka Raymond) and father (Usher) by his side.

Fortunately, doctors say that the young boy will be OK, but it was definitely a scary ordeal for the family, especially considering what Usher and ex-wife Tameka went through last year when Tameka's 11-year-old son Kile was killed after a tragic jet ski accident.

We wish young Usher Raymond V a speedy recovery and will continue to keep you updated on his progress.

UPDATE: Good news! Usher (junior) is doing much better today and is eating, talking to people and even laughing, TMZ reports.
