At a USC basketball session, LeBron James's kid Bronny suffered a cardiac arrest and was taken to the hospital.

According to a statement released by a family spokeswoman, NBA superstar LeBron James’ son Bronny experienced a heart attack during basketball practice at the University of Southern California on Monday and was subsequently hospitalized.

The statement claimed he has been transferred out of the intensive care unit and is now in stable health.

Bronny James collapsed with a heart attack yesterday during practice. Bronny was able to be treated by medical personnel and sent to the hospital. “He has improved to the point where he no longer requires intensive care,” the statement read.

Please give the James family the space they need, and we will keep you posted as we learn more.

LeBron and Savannah want to publicly express their gratitude and admiration for the USC medical and athletic staff’s extraordinary efforts and commitment to the safety of their athletes.

After graduating from Sierra Canyon High School in Los Angeles this spring, 18-year-old Bronny will join the USC basketball team as a freshman. The 6-foot-3 combo guard was a standout in the March McDonald’s All-American Game, which featured the best high school basketball players in the country. He was a four-star recruit.

He joined a USC team looking to make it to the NCAA Tournament for the fourth year in a row after averaging 14.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.7 steals in his final year of high school.

After Bronny made his decision to attend the University of Southern California (USC), his father said on Instagram, “So damn proud of you kid!” There’s nothing else I can say than “I LOVE YOU!!!”

James, at 38 years old, is about to embark on his 21st season in the NBA and his sixth with the Los Angeles Lakers. One of the final things on the bucket list of the four-time NBA champion and MVP is to play basketball with his kid, who will be of age to do so in 2019.

When asked about his final season, James informed the Athletic that he would be spending time with his son. If Bronny is anywhere, then so am I. I’d give up work for a year if it meant I could spend more time with my son. When you get to that stage, money doesn’t matter.

James introduced his family—wife Savannah, boys Bronny and Bryce, and daughter Zhuri—onstage at the ESPY Awards two weeks ago, calling them the “greatest blessing in my life.”

“I can’t tell you how proud I am of these two young guys standing right behind me tonight,” he remarked, gesturing to his two sons. See, they’re on a different path to hoops success. And they’re not going to win by dishonest means, no matter how far they go. I find motivation from that.

Athletics and cardiac arrhythmia

When the heart suddenly stops beating due to electrical abnormalities, it is said to be in cardiac arrest. Although the American Heart Association warns that it can be fatal if not treated quickly, CPR and defibrillator shocks can often save the patient’s life.

The medical staff at USC has dealt with a similar situation recently. Vince Iwuchukwu, a freshman forward for the University of Southern California, collapsed and died during a summer exercise in July. Iwuchukwu said he fainted during a water break at practice in a video he posted to Twitter earlier this year.

Jon Yonamine, Erin Tillman, and Lauren Crawford, three of USC’s athletic trainers, conducted CPR and shocked him to revive him, the university reported. After recovering for nearly six months, Iwuchukwu finally made his basketball debut in January.

In January, head coach Andy Enfield had high appreciation for his team’s trainers.

They truly do an outstanding job of not just keeping our athletes healthy but also providing therapy when necessary and being ready to act right away when something catastrophic occurs, like in Vince’s case.

Damar Hamlin, a member of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, went into cardiac arrest during a “Monday Night Football” game last year, forcing him to spend more than a week in the hospital.

Praying for Bronny and the James family, Hamlin tweeted on Tuesday. “I’m here for you guys the way that you’ve been there for me throughout this whole thing.”
