Usher's son released from hospital after accident

ATLANTA (AP) - The son of Grammy-winning R&B singer Usher has been released from the hospital after nearly drowning in an Atlanta pool.

A lawyer for the boy's mother said Tuesday that 5-year-old Usher Raymond V was released from Children's Healthcare of Atlanta-Scottish Rite on Sunday. Lawyer Angela Kinley said Tameka Foster Raymond saw her son at school yesterday when he attended orientation for the new year.

Police say the boy fell to the bottom of a pool behind the singer's downtown home Aug. 5 and became stuck in the drain.

A housekeeper tried unsuccessfully to free him. A contractor doing work at the home pulled him from the pool and performed CPR.

On Friday, a judge dismissed an emergency request by Usher's ex-wife seeking temporary custody of their two children.
