Friends and associates of Usher are praying for a quick recovery for the music superstar’s son, Usher Raymond V. The little boy is in the intensive care unit of an Atlanta hospital, after he nearly drowned in a residential pool in the Georgia capital. The 5-year-old’s arm got stuck in the pool’s drain, after he jumped in to retrieve a toy he saw in the drain. After the boy’s aunt and a maid were unsuccessful in freeing him, two men working at the house were successful.
