Atlanta - Authorities say the son of Grammy-winning R&B singer Usher nearly drowned in an Atlanta pool.

Atlanta police spokesperson Carlos Campos said in a report on Tuesday that the 5-year-old boy fell to the bottom of pool and became stuck in the drain. Campos says it happened on Monday afternoon behind a home in downtown Atlanta.

Campos says the housekeeper tried to get to the boy, but was unable to pull him from the drain. The boy was eventually pulled from the pool, and given CPR by a man who was working at the home as an audio-visual subcontractor.

Campos says the boy was "conscious, breathing and alert" when firefighters arrived before 16:00 local time. He is at the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Scottish Rite.
