ATLANTA (WXIA) -- 11Alive News has confirmed that Usher Raymond V, the 5-year-old son of singer Usher Raymond, was rushed to the hospital Monday late Monday afternoon after a pool accident.

A police report said young Usher became stuck in the drain of a swimming pool when he tried to retrieve a toy.

The boy's aunt and the housekeeper both tried to free him without success, before calling for help from contractors working in the house.

The workers were able to free young Usher and performed CPR to revive him.

He was taken to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Scottish Rite for treatment, and, according to police, was being kept there for observation.

The incident comes about a year after Usher's ex-stepson, Kile Glover, was killed in a boating accident on Lake Lanier.
