Rapper Usher’s eldest son,Usher Raymond V,has been hospitalized following an accident in the singer’s pool early this week.

The five-year-old boy was playing in the pool with his aunt when he dove under water to retrieve a toy from the drain. His arm then got stuck in the drain,and neither his aunt nor a maid could free him,reported TMZ.

Two men who had been working in the house reportedly came out when the maid screamed for help and they were able to get the child’s arm unstuck.

He was given CPR and then rushed by ambulance to the hospital,where he was admitted to the intensive care unit. Usher,who was not at home when the accident happened,arrived in time to be in the ambulance with him.

Usher and ex-wife Tameka Foster are also parents to four-year-old son Naviyd Ely Raymond.
