Lebron James Jr., the 18-year-old son of NBA star Lebron James and his wife Savannah James, has suffered a medical emergency while working out on his college campus.
Sources say that the young athlete was working at a facility located on his college campus, University of Southern California, when he went into sudden cardiac arrest. James Jr., affectionately known as "Bronny", 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 family ended their statement by showing their appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their “incredible work and dedication” to the safety of their athletes.
Please keep Bronny, and his family, in your prayers!
