NBA superstar LeBron James and his wife Savannah are feeling a sense of relief and hopefulness after their son Bronny’s sudden cardiac arrest. The incident occurred during a training session at USC’s Galen Center and led to Bronny being rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center’s ICU, where he was unconscious.
Thankfully, Bronny’s condition has stabilized, and he has been discharged from intensive care. This positive development has given the James family encouragement. Sources now report that both LeBron and Savannah are feeling calmer. Although they are still eager to understand the cause of the cardiac arrest, they have been comforted by the reassurances provided by the medical team, which has lessened their fear and concern.
It remains unclear why a healthy teenager such as Bronny would suffer a cardiac event.
LeBron was pictured arriving at the hospital on Tuesday after it was reported earlier that Lakers star James is ‘scared and devastated’ by the shock news.
Bronny was rushed to hospital in an ambulance after a 911 call was made at 9:26am Monday.
The incident is believed to have been a Code 3, which signifies the seriousness of the call as it requires ambulance lights and sirens.
A spokesman for the James family said on Tuesday: ‘Yesterday while practicing Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest. The 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 the 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.’
