Bronny James, the eldest son of basketball superstar LeBron James, experienced a cardiac arrest while practicing basketball at the University of Southern California on Monday.
Medical assistance was provided at the scene before he was transported to the hospital. A family representative stated that Bronny James is now in stable condition and is no longer in the intensive care unit. The family has requested privacy during this time, and further updates will be shared when appropriate.
The spokesperson expressed gratitude towards the USC medical and athletic staff for their dedicated efforts in ensuring the safety of their athletes. Standing at 6-foot-3, Bronny James is an incoming freshman for the USC Trojans and is currently ranked 20th on ESPN’s Top 100 2023 recruits list. The university has refrained from commenting on the matter to respect student privacy.
It is worth noting that another USC basketball player, Vincent Iwuchukwu, also experienced a cardiac arrest and was hospitalized last summer. He spent several days recovering at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after collapsing during an informal team practice on July 1, 2022. As more details emerge, this story will be updated accordingly.
