The spokesperson requested respect and privacy for the James family during this time, and promised to share updates with the media as and when appropriate. “LeBron and Savannah extend their profound gratitude to the USC medical and athletic team for their remarkable dedication and commitment to the welfare of their athletes.”

In May, Bronny James declared his intention to join USC for college basketball. As an incoming freshman, he was one of the country’s top high school prospects.

The Big Big News has reached out to a spokesperson for USC’s athletic department and the Los Angeles County Fire Department for comments.

Buffalo Bills’ safety Damar Hamlin, who experienced cardiac arrest during an NFL match last season, extended his support via a tweet: “Prayers to Bronny & The James Family (prayer emoji) standing by you as you did during my journey.”

Bronny James’s cardiac arrest comes slightly over a year after USC freshman and 7-foot player, Vince Iwuchukwu, collapsed during a training session. Iwuchukwu suffered a cardiac arrest on July 1, 2022, and was quickly attended to by athletic trainers who used an automated external defibrillator to resuscitate him.

Iwuchukwu was fitted with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator, a battery-powered pulse generator, in his chest, the Los Angeles Times reported. Despite this setback, Iwuchukwu was able to join the Trojans for the latter part of last season.
