– Usher’s 5-year-old son, Usher Raymond V, is in intensive care after a swimming accident Monday. The boy was playing in the pool with his aunt when he dove to retrieve a toy underwater and got stuck in a drain, reports USA Today. His aunt and a maid unsuccessfully tried to release the boy; he was freed by two workers and was rushed to an Atlanta hospital. Last year, Usher’s 11-year-old stepson died after a jet ski accident in Georgia.
– For the first time in 39 years, Al Roker overslept. The iconic “Today” weatherman missed his 6 a.m. Weather Channel show Tuesday morning when his alarm failed to go off. (Just one alarm? Roker said that he didn’t have a backup because he never needed one. ) Only slightly sheepish, he showed up in time for his “Today” gig.
