TMZ Sports authorities have confirmed that quick action was taken without any delay and a 911 call was made at 9:26 AM Monday from USC’s Galen Center. This was the venue where the team plays and practices and where James was practicing too.
The 18 year old hopper lay unconscious there, however, was saved in time because of the speedy response of the other players and authority members present there.
“LeBron and Savannah wish to publicly send their deepest thanks and appreciation to the USC medical and athletic staff for their incredible work and dedication to the safety of their athletes.”
It was a shock to the fans following Bronny. Everyone was praying for the recovery of the player. Cardiac arrest among athletes is not new. There have been a plethora of cases of athletes suffering from cardiac arrest. An examination of NCAA student-athlete sudden deaths between 2004 and 2008 found cardiovascular-related sudden death was the leading cause of death in 45 cases, or about 9 each year.
