Raymond has been granted an emergency custody hearing scheduled for Friday at 2 p.m.

Atlanta police have said Raymond V fell to the bottom of pool Monday and became stuck in the drain. Police say he was alert and conscious when he was pulled from the pool and was taken to a hospital.

Usher released a statement after his son’s accident:

“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.

“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.”

The singer currently has full custody of the boys.
