Pool drain dangers: R&B star's son nearly drowns

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

A near tragedy for pop superstar Usher. The singer's 5-year-old son nearly drowns -- not because he couldn't swim -- but because his hand was stuck in the pool drain.

The 5-year-old was barely breathing when he was finally freed from the drain and pulled out.

The singer's son is in intensive care at an Atlanta hospital and Usher released a statement saying his son is doing fine.

But this high-profile incident has shed light on yet another danger around pools -- pool drains.

FOX 10's Ty Brennan talked to a pool supply expert on safe pool drains. It's an inexpensive fix that can keep you and your family safe.
