Bronny James, the oldest son of NBA player LeBron James, has been released from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after experiencing cardiac arrest.
However, new details reveal just how serious the situation was on that day.
The Los Angeles Fire Department recently released the 911 call made after Bronny collapsed during basketball practice at the Galen Center. The caller urgently requested an ambulance, emphasizing the need for immediate medical assistance.
“We need an ambulance immediately,” the caller is heard telling the 911 operator.
“Listen…listen to me,” he said. “We need an ambulance here now.”
“We’re going to send help,” the operator responds.
The operator assured them that help was on the way. Eventually, first responders arrived at the scene and transported Bronny to the hospital’s intensive care unit. Fortunately, his condition later stabilized, and he was moved out of the ICU. LeBron James took to Twitter to update his followers, assuring them that everyone in the family was doing well.
Bronny, who recently started his freshman year at USC, had been preparing for an exhibition tour in Croatia and Greece with his college team. Sudden cardiac arrest in young athletes is rare but not unheard of, as research has shown that cardiovascular-related issues contribute to a significant number of sudden deaths in this population.
Bronny, a 6-foot-3 combo guard, graduated from Sierra Canyon High School, where he showcased impressive skills on the court.
