UPDATE: Lebron is worried about his 18-year-old son. A cardiologist warns this could end Bronny’s career.
LeBron James is ‘scared and devastated’ following his son Bronny’s cardiac arrest during USC practice, friends have revealed.
The 18-year-old basketball protégé was rushed to hospital and admitted to ICU after collapsing at USC’s Galen Center on Monday, his family confirmed today.
LeBron is ‘making sure he gets the best care possible’ and has entered ‘full Dad mode and is protecting his son in any way he can,’ a source told DailyMail.com.
Cardiologists have warned that Bronny’s career – which was only just beginning following his high school graduation – could already be over.
Dr Christopher Tanayan told DailyMail.com: ‘If they find something that puts him at a high risk for sudden death then that … may make or break his career.’
This is another tragic story that may have been preventable.
