Usher Raymond V, the singer’s elder son with his ex-wife Tameka Foster, was rushed to the hospital on Monday after a pool accident at the popstar’s Atlanta home.
TMZ first reported the news, stating that Usher’s son attempted to retrieve a toy in a pool drain when his arm got stuck. Reportedly, the boy’s aunt and a maid tried unsuccessfully to rescue him.
Thankfully, two male employees working inside the home eventually freed the boy, who was given CPR and then rushed to an Atlanta-area hospital, where Usher and Tameka are at his side.
“Tameka got a call from one of Usher’s staff members and rushed to the hospital,” a source says. “She almost collapsed when she heard the news.”
Last July, the family suffered a tragedy when Tameka’s 11-year-old son Kile died after being struck by a jet ski.
“She’s still not over Kile, and now this happens,” the source says of Tameka. “She is not going to leave his side now. … We’re all lifting him up in prayer.”
Usher and Tameka are also parents to 4-year-old son Naviyd Ely.
