LeBron James' son Bronny suffers cardiac arrest during practice

LeBron James' son Bronny James was taken into the ICU after suffering from a cardiac arrest during a USC basketball workout on Monday, July 24th.

According to TMZ, the 18-year-old was taken by ambulance from USC's Galen Center after a 911 call was made during practice.

A spokesperson for the James family told TMZ: "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.


"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 report says that James was unconscious when he was taken to the hospital by the ambulance and it was a 'Code 3' response that saw sirens and lights, showing the significance of the issue.


According to subsequent reports, the high school basketball player is now out of ICU and in a stable condition though he remains in hospital.

James' son has already committed to play for the USC Trojans at college after he was also offered a place at the likes of Ohio State, Oregon and Kentucky.

The teenager is a 6"3 guard and was a star at the McDonald's All-American Game and is expected to one day join the NBA.

His dad, considered one of the greatest players of all time, has previously expressed a desire to play with Bronny in the league in the future.
