Usher‘s oldest son is in intensive care at an Atlanta hospital after an accident that occurred at a swimming pool yesterday (Aug. 5).

According to TMZ, the 5-year-old child, Usher Raymond V, dove into the pool when he saw a toy stuck in a drain just after 2PM. His arm ended up getting stuck in the drain, and after attempts by both his aunt and a maid to free him, two audio-visual contractors working in the house came to the boy’s rescue when the maid screamed for help.

Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster went to the hospital for their son, who’s expected to recover.

Another water-related accident struck Usher’s family last year when his stepson, Kile Glover, died after being taken off life support due to a jet ski accident.
