Usher Breaks Silence on Son's Near Death Drowning Accident

Usher has broken his silence following his son Usher V‘s accident that almost led him to drown in the family pool.

“I would like to thank my Aunt Rena 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,” the 34-year-old singer said in a statement (via People). “They are true heroes and I am deeply grateful to them.”

“I am blessed and fortunate to say that my son Usher V is doing well and is recovering,” he continued. “I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of prayers, love and support for my family’s well-being,”

Usher‘s ex-wife Tameka Foster has reportedly requested a hearing to obtain full custody of her two children with the singer after the accident.
