LeBron James was photographed in his first public outing following son Bronny James’ health emergency earlier this week. The Los Angeles Lakers player was seen arriving at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Monday, July 24.
Obtained by Page Six, the picture saw LeBron walking into the hospital while donning gray sweatshorts and a white graphic T-shirt. The 38-year-old apparently tried to go incognito in a baseball hat and face mask as he carried a small circular bag and an iPad.
He arrived at the hospital in a black SUV. The NBA legend, who was joined by one of his friends, was seemingly in good spirits as he held up a peace sign for photographers.
LeBron’s outing came after Bronny was rushed to the hospital after suffering cardiac arrest during basketball practice at the University of Southern California on Monday. It was reported that a 911 call was made at 9:26 A.M. His condition was considered a Code 3, which meant the ambulance had lights and sirens going to signify the seriousness of the emergency.
A spokesperson for the James confirmed the 18-year-old athlete’s health scare in a statement that read, “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 statement continued. “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.”
Later on Tuesday, Bronny’s brother Bryce Maximus took to social media to show support for Bronny. Bryce posted on Instagram Stories a picture of the duo standing next to each other. Taken from behind, the photo saw the brothers smiling while looking at a phone screen. The 16-year-old also added a red heart emoji in his post.
