Usher’s Son Released from Hospital After Near-Drowning Incident as Hero Speaks Out

Usher’s son, Usher Raymond V, has finally been released from the hospital and headed to an indoor play facility called Mighty Jumps for a day of fun with his brother and grandma.

Meanwhile, one of the heroes who saved his life is finally speaking up and revealed he is just grateful that Usher V is alive and well.

It didn’t take long for Usher’s five-year-old son to get back into  serious play time.

While he is sporting a new accessory now, a large bandage on his arm, it wasn’t enough to hold him back from bouncing around with his brother at Mights Jumps in Atlanta on Monday.

It was only a week ago that little Usher’s life was in the balance after his arm was caught in a pool drain while playing in the swimming pool at the home of Usher’s aunt.

While the aunt was unable to rescue Usher V, two subcontractors who happened to be installing some sound equipment in the home at the time were able to come to his rescue.

One of the heroes, 35-year-old Eugene Stachurski, is speaking up about the incident and said he is just happy that he was able to do something to save the boy’s life.

“I am just glad Usher’s son is alive,” he told CNN.

Stachurski actually rushed outside and dived into the pool when he saw Usher V stuck under water. After releasing the child’s arm from the drain, he gave him CPR until he began breathing normally again.

Thanks to his efforts, Usher V was conscious by the time paramedics made it to the scene.

Usher made a public statement to thank both men for saving his son’s life and according to Stachurski he thanked him again in private.

The close call also sparked up yet another custody battle between Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Foster. This time around, the custody battle was much shorter and settled within a matter of days.

A judge decided that Usher was still more than capable of caring for both of his young sons, which means Tameka won’t be able to gain the full custody she was seeking.
