LeBron James’ son Bronny suffered cardiac arrest during a basketball workout at the University of Southern California Monday.
The 18-year-old athlete was taken to the hospital where he was treated in the intensive care unit (ICU) before being released to general care, a spokesperson for the James family told TMZ Tuesday.
“Yesterday while practicing Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest. Medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital. He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU,” the statement began.
“We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update media when there is more information.”
The statement concluded with LeBron and his wife Savannah, thanking USC medical and athletic staff for their “incredible work and dedication” to the safety of their athletes.
