Usher's five-year-old son with ex Tameka Foster, Usher Raymond V, was rushed to the ICU in Atlanta, Georgia following a pool accident, omg! has confirmed.

According to a police incident report obtained by omg!, Usher's oldest son was playing in the pool with his aunt when he attempted to get a toy that was caught in the pool drain and his arm got stuck. The aunt and a maid tried to rescue him, but were unsuccessful. Two audio-visual subcontractors heard cries for help and eventually freed the boy.

"The Voice" mentor was not home at the time.

One of the subcontractors gave Usher's son CPR and was able to revive the boy. Upon hearing the news, the singer rushed to his son's side, who was rushed to the hospital and held overnight for observation.

"Tameka got a call from one of Usher's staff members and (also) rushed to the hospital," a source tells People. "She almost collapsed when she heard the news."

Last July, tragedy struck Tameka when her 11-year-old son Kile Glover, died after been taken off life support following a jet ski accident in Georgia. Although Usher wasn't Kile's biological father, the R&B singer was extremely close to Kile as well.

"She's still not over Kile, and now this happens," People's source says of Tameka. "She is not going to leave his side now ... We're all lifting him up in prayer."

Usher and Tameka have another son together, Naviyd Ely Raymond, 4.
