Usher’s Oldest Son Nearly Drowns; Youngest Son Naviyd Screams Hysterically, “He’s Faking!”
TMZ has obtained a copy of the 911 call placed by Usher’s frantic aunt Rena Oden after Usher’s 5-year-old son nearly drowned in a swimming pool at a private residence on Howell Mill Road in suburban Fulton County on Monday, Aug. 5.
Usher Raymond V, aka Cinco, was pulled from the pool unconscious after his hand became stuck in a pool drain when he dived in to retrieve a toy. His aunt and a maid tried unsuccessfully to free the boy. Two men working inside the house heard the women’s screams and dived into the pool. The men were able to rescue the child.
Usher’s aunt Rena Oden is hysterical during the call. She tells the 911 dispatcher, “My nephew was in the pool. He went… I couldn’t get him. I tried to get him… And they got him out now.. they’re doing CPR on him.”
Oden told the 911 operator the boy was breathing. “Please hurry!” she said.
In the background of the call, Usher’s 4-year-old son, Naviyd, can be heard screaming and crying hysterically. “He’s faking! He’s faking!” Naviyd screams as his aunt corrects him and tells him his brother is not faking. Naviyd lost his older brother, Kile Glover, in a freak boating accident on Lake Lanier in July of last year.
TMZ reports that Usher V, aka Cinco, is currently in the ICU at Grady hospital. Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Foster-Raymond are currently at the hospital with him.
Usher was granted primary custody of the two boys in a controversial court decision last year. The judge in that case later recused herself and the court order was voided.
