LeBron James’ Son, Bronny, Suffers Cardiac Arrest During Workout at USC

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

The 18-year-old athlete was taken to the hospital where he was treated in the intensive care unit (ICU) before being released to general care, a spokesperson for the James family told TMZ Tuesday.

“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 statement began. 

“We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update media when there is more information.”

The statement concluded with LeBron and his wife Savannah, thanking USC medical and athletic staff for their “incredible work and dedication” to the safety of their athletes.

Sources told the outlet that a call was made to 911 from the school’s Galen Center, which is where the team plays and practices. The patient, who was later confirmed to be Bronny, was rushed to the hospital via ambulance that was all lights and sirens.

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’d 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.”
