ATLANTA -

Usher's eldest son, Usher Raymond V, is recovering in a hospital in Atlanta Tuesday following a pool accident, according to TMZ.

The accident involving the singer's 5-year-old son at their home in Atlanta, happened last night.  He reportedly took in a lot of water in his lungs and needed resuscitation.

Sources tell TMZ Usher and ex-wife Tameka Raymond, the mother of his two sons, are both at the hospital while doctors run tests.

This isn't the first tragedy to strike the Raymond family.  Tameka's 11-year-old son from a previous marriage passed away last year from injuries suffered in a jet ski accident.
