LeBron James acknowledges well-wishers following the cardiac arrest of his son Bronny. LeBron James tweeted about his son Bronny James for the first time since the 18-year-old suffered a cardiac arrest earlier this week. He thanked well-wishers for sending his family “love and prayers.”
“We feel you, and I am so appreciative. Everyone is doing fantastic,” the NBA star remarked. “Our family is secure and healthy, and we feel your affection. I will have more to say when we are ready, but I wanted to express how much your support has meant to all of us in the meantime. #JamesGang”
Bronny James, an incoming freshman for the men’s basketball team at the University of Southern California, suffered a cardiac arrest during practice on Monday and was hospitalized, according to a statement released Tuesday by a family representative. According to the report, James was stable after being removed from the intensive care unit.
Several months ago, James underwent a cardiac screening as part of a program for prospective NBA players, according to a source with knowledge of the matter.
The screening included a transthoracic echocardiogram, which examines blood flow through the heart and cardiac valves, and an electrocardiogram, which records the heart’s electrical activity, according to the source. Both examinations returned the expected results.
