Usher Offers Statement on Son's Pool Accident

R&B crooner Usher issued a press statement about his son Usher Raymond V's pool accident, in which he almost drowned earlier this week. "I am blessed and fortunate to say that my son Usher V is doing well and is recovering. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of prayers, love and support for my family's well-being," he said.
Two contractors working at Usher's Atlanta home dove into the pool to save the child, 5, after his aunt and a maid failed in their attempt to free him when his arm was caught in a pool drain.
"I would especially like to thank the two men who saved my son's life, Eugene Stachurski and Ben Crews," Usher said. "They are true heroes and I am deeply grateful to them."
Usher and his ex-wife Tameka are headed to court today (August 9) to revisit their custody situation in light of this accident.
