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

The Yeah singer’s son was playing in the pool with his aunt and saw a toy in the drain around 2 p.m. on Monday. 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, TMZ reports.

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, who was not there at the time of the incident, arrived and drove in the ambulance with his son to a Atlanta hospital.

Usher Raymond V, who Usher calls Cinco, underwent some form of resuscitation because his lungs reportedly filled with water. Doctors have run a series of tests and he appears to be doing fine.

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

This the second water incident in the Raymond family. Usher’s 11-year-old stepson Kile passed away last year from injuries sustained in a jet ski accident.
