Usher's son thankfully is recovering well following a recent incident in which he was almost drowned. The 5-year-old Usher Raymond V was spotted leaving an indoor play center called Mighty Jumps in Atlanta on Monday, August 11 alongside his grandmother. A huge bandage was wrapped around his right arm.
Little Usher was almost drowned last week after his arm was stuck in a drain underwater as he attempted to retrieve a toy. He was saved by two workers who were nearby. Eugene Stachurski, who was installing recording equipment at the singer's house at that time, told TMZ of the incident, "I thank God I was there to do something."
Stachurski and audio/visual contractor Ben Crews jumped into the water to save the little boy. Stachurski immediately performed CPR when Usher's aunt called 911. The kid reportedly was able to breathe before the ambulance arrived.
The "Numb" singer has publicly thanked the two people for saving his son's life. "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 in a statement.
"I would like to thank my Aunt Rena [Oden] as well as the doctors and nurses who are working with us around the clock. I would especially like to thank the two men who saved my son's life, Eugene Stachurski and Ben Crews. They are true heroes and I am deeply grateful to them," he added.
