Bronny James is now in stable condition after suffering cardiac arrest during a basketball workout at the University of Southern California.
LeBron and Savannah James’ 18-year-old son was taken to the intensive care unit on Monday.
“Yesterday while practicing, Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest,” a spokesperson of the James family told TMZ. “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.”
Bronny is now reportedly in stable condition.
“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 spokesperson added.
According to the outlet, someone made a 911 call at 9:26 a.m. on Monday from USC’s Galen Center. Bronny was unconscious when taken to the hospital.
This is the second time in the past year that USC had to respond to a men’s basketball player suffering cardiac arrest during practice, according to the Los Angeles Times. Vince Iwuchukwu collapsed during training and was revived by USC medical staff. He returned to the court six months later.
Bronny is an incoming freshman at USC. He joined the Trojans after news of his admission last May. He is regarded as one of the country’s most promising rising figures in basketball.
