Usher has thanked the men who saved his son's life.
The 'Scream' hitmaker's five-year-old son Usher Raymond V is recovering in hospital in Atlanta, Georgia, after narrowly avoiding drowning on Monday (05.08.13) when his hand got stuck in a drain at the bottom of a swimming pool.
Usher has now issued a statement expressing his gratitude towards the ''true heroes'' who dove into the pool to rescue his son when both his father's aunt - who was looking after him at the time - and a maid were unable to free him.
He said: ''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. 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. I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of prayers, love and support for my family's well-being.''
Usher's ex-wife Tameka Foster - who also has four-year-old son Naviyd Ely with the R&B singer - has been at the little boy's bedside ever since and has demanded a court hearing in the hopes of regaining full custody of her children.
A source told People magazine: ''Now that it's sunk in, she is livid. Usher has custody and won't let Tameka have the kids, even when he's out of town.
''She feels like the kids are being raised by his family or by nannies, when they should be with their mother.''
