Usher Raymond’s 5-year-old son nearly drowned while swimming at his Atlanta area home Monday. The Grammy-winner’s son was trapped in the drain and could not be freed by his aunt. According to NBC News Usher Raymond V was freed by two audio-visual sub-contractors who were working at the home.
The child received CPR at the scene, was taken to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite and was “conscious and alert.” He will be kept at the hospital overnight for observation. Usher Raymond V is the oldest son of Raymond and ex-wife Tameka Foster. They have a four-year-old as well. Last year Tameka Foster’s son Kyle died as a result of being struck by a ski-jet at a nearby lake outside of Atlanta. We will be praying for little Usher.
