NBA Superstar LeBron James’ Son Bronny Suffers Life Threatening Cardiac Arrest
According to WCNC Charlotte, the oldest son of LeBron James, Bronny James was rushed to the hospital after an extreme health scare. The health scare happened during college basketball practice where he collapsed and then suffered cardiac arrest.
The 911 call was made Monday right before 9:30 a.m. from the University of Southern California’s Galen Center. This is where the school’s basketball team plays and practices.
A statement from a family spokesperson said, “Medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital. He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU. We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update the media when there is more information. LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes.”
LeBron James stated that he would someday like to play with his son. Bronny will be draft-eligible next summer. The star player is currently 18 years old and announced in May that he would play college basketball for the Trojans. He was one of the top high school prospects in the country.
Bronny appeared on stage at the ESPYs earlier this month with his siblings and mother to present his dad with an award for becoming the NBA’s career scoring leader.
The ESPYs ceremony also gave an award to the Buffalo Bills training staff called the Pat Tillman Award for Service. They were given the award for saving the life of safety Damar Hamlin. He went into cardiac arrest in January at a game in Cincinnati. The medical staff’s quick actions may have saved his life.
Hamlin tweeted on Tuesday “Prayers to Bronny & The James family as well. Here for you guys just like you have been for me my entire process.”
