LeBron James’ 18-Year-Old Son Hospitalised After Sudden Cardiac Arrest Incident

Basketball superstar LeBron James’ 18-year-old son, Bronny James, was rushed to the hospital after experiencing a cardiac arrest during a workout at the University of Southern California. Thankfully, he has been moved out of the ICU and is now in stable condition.

According to a spokesperson for the family who spoke with TMZ Sports, the incident occurred while Bronny was practicing, leading medical staff to promptly attend to him and transport him to the hospital. The James family has requested respect and privacy during this time, and further updates will be provided to the media when available.

The emergency services received the call at 9.26 am local time and quickly responded to the Galen Centre, where Bronny’s team, the Trojans, trains and plays. Upon arrival, the 18-year-old was found unconscious and received immediate treatment before being taken to the hospital.

LeBron James, often regarded as one of the greatest basketball players of all time, has been very supportive of his son’s basketball career. He is often seen in the stands cheering for Bronny, even during the NBA season. LeBron has previously expressed a strong desire to play alongside his son in the NBA before retiring.

Despite this dream, broadcaster Stephen A. Smith, an NBA analyst, emphasized that the family’s main concern now is Bronny’s health and well-being. He highlighted LeBron’s reputation as a devoted and loving father, as well as the support and prayers from fellow athletes like Damar Hamlin, Magic Johnson, and Robert Griffin III, who have all sent their best wishes for Bronny’s recovery.

As of now, the exact cause of the cardiac arrest remains unknown, but the hope is that the medical team will swiftly identify and address it to ensure Bronny’s complete recovery. The James family appreciates the dedicated work and commitment of the USC medical and athletic staff in caring for their athletes during this challenging time.
