Usher Raymond V rushed to an ATL hospital after a terrible accident in a residential pool Monday.  All of this only one year after the death of Usher's 11 yr old step son Kile.

Usher Raymond V is the older of the two sons Usher has with his ex wife & former stylist, Tameka Raymond.  The boy was playing in the pool when he saw a toy in the drain & his arm became caught in the drain submerging the 5 yr old.

We are told the maid screamed for help & one of the contractors working on the ATL home dove into the pool freeing the child & performed CPR. The boy remains in ICU at the Atlanta hospital.

Usher was not present at the time of the accident but rushed to the hospital to be with his son. Usher's 11yr old step son Kile, Tameka's son from a previous relationship, died just last year from injuries sustained from a jet ski accident. Usher was devastated by the loss of his step son, thank God Usher Raymond V is ok. All this after the much publicized custody battle between Usher & Tameka over their 2 sons 5 yr old Usher Raymond V & 4 yr old Naviyd. What a terrible & tragic year for the Raymond family!

We wish Usher Raymond V a speedy recovery! Check out the cute photo of Usher & his lil man!
