LeBron James’ son Bronny, 18, suffers cardiac

LeBron James’ son Bronny suffered cardiac arrest Monday during a basketball practice at the University of Southern California.

The 18-year-old athlete was taken to a hospital, where he was treated in the intensive care unit before being released to general care, a spokesperson for the James family tells Page Six.

“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,” the rep’s statement begins.“We ask for respect and privacy for the James family, and we will update media when there is more information.”The statement concludes with LeBron and his wife, Savannah James, thanking USC medical and athletic staff for their “incredible work and dedication” to the safety of their athletes.

According to the American Heart Association, cardiac arrest occurs when the heart “malfunctions and stops beating unexpectedly.”

This differs from a heart attack, which happens when blood flow to the organ is blocked.

Sources told TMZ Sports, which was first to report the news, that a call was made to 911 from the school’s Galen Center, which is where the Trojans team plays and practices.

The patient, who was later confirmed to be Bronny, was rushed to the hospital via ambulance with lights and sirens, according to the outlet.

Bronny recently committed to USC and is expected to follow in his famed father’s footsteps and enter the NBA.

The Los Angeles Lakers legend, 38, previously has expressed his desire to play alongside Bronny in the pros, saying he would do “whatever it takes” to have at least one season together.

“My last year will be with my son. Wherever Bronny’s at, that’s where I’ll be,” LeBron told the Athletic in February 2022.

“I would do whatever it takes to play with my son for one year. It’s not about the money at that point.”

Bronny, a 6-foot-3 guard who played for Sierra Canyon School in LA, was ranked 20th in the country in the 2023 class by ESPN.
