Lebron James son Bronny James is in stable condition a day after suffering cardiac arrest
Lebron James son Bronny James is in stable condition and no longer in the intensive care unit, a day after he was hospitalized after a cardiac event during a workout.
James was working out at the Galen Center, USC’s home arena, when an emergency call was made Monday morning.
“Yesterday while practicing Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest. Medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital. He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU,” a James family spokesman told USA TODAY Sports in a statement.
The family said, “We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update 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.”
The 18-year-old four-star recruit committed to the Trojans in May after averaging 14 points, five rebounds and three assists in his senior campaign at Sierra Canyon (Los Angeles) School last season. He possesses many of the unselfish skills as his dad.
Damar Hamlin, whose on-the-football-field cardiac arrest captured the attention of the country earlier this year, took to social media Tuesday to express his support for Bronny James and offer his assistance to the James family.
