Bronny James, LeBron’s son, goes into cardiac arrest during USC practice: family reveals he is stable and no longer in ICU
LeBron James’ son, Bronny, suffered a cardiac arrest during basketball practice, according to a report.
The Lakers superstar’s son was rushed to the hospital after the incident occurred during a USC workout, according to TMZ.
The 18-year-old is now said to be in stable condition and is no longer in ICU.
Bronny, who recently committed to the Trojans, was taken by ambulance from USC’s Galen Center, where the school’s basketball team plays and practices, after a 911 call was allegedly placed at 9:26 a.m. Monday.
The incident is believed to be a Code 3, indicating the severity of the call, as it requires ambulance lights and sirens.

We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and will update the media when there is more information.
“LeBron and Savannah would like to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC athletic and medical staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes.”
Bronny recently took another step on the path of following in his father’s footsteps by choosing to wear his iconic No. 6 at USC for his freshman year.
USC revealed the exciting news on its Twitter page, writing alongside a graphic: ‘FIRST LOOK: Bronny James will wear number 6 for the Trojans.’
His father, LeBron James, of course, is synonymous with number 6 from his glittering career with the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat, though he’s also worn number 23 before.
This year, the 38-year-old James became the all-time leading points scorer in NBA history, surpassing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s career tally of 38,387 points.
