NBA superstar LeBron James’ teenage son suffered a cardiac arrest and was rushed to the hospital on Monday, according to a spokesperson for the family.
“Yesterday while practicing Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest. Medical staff was able to treat Bronny and take him to the hospital. He is now in stable condition and no longer in ICU. We ask for respect and privacy for the James family and we will update media when there is more information,” the spokesperson told TMZ.
“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,” the spokesperson added.
The shocking news spread like wildfire on social media, with many questioning what caused the young athlete’s sudden illness.
Tech billionaire Elon Musk tweeted, “We cannot ascribe everything to the vaccine, but, by the same token, we cannot ascribe nothing. Myocarditis is a known side-effect. The only question is whether it is rare or common.”
Journalist Benny Johnson tweeted, “Hi. I’m not a doctor. I’m just a simple man of 37 years who pays attention to trends we can see with our own eyes. I’m here to tell you that it is NOT NORMAL for thousands of healthy teenage athletes to be collapsing – some dying – from cardiac arrest. Now ask: Why?”
Myocarditis diagnoses skyrocketed among U.S. troops after the COVID-19 vaccine was rolled out, according to a top Defense Department official.
Gilbert Cisneros Jr., undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness, confirmed the annual average of myocarditis cases soared 151% in 2021 in the wake of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, Epoch Times reported.
Myocarditis is inflammation of the heart muscle, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
