(RepublicanNews.org) – Lebron James’ 18-year-old son Bronny is the latest public figure and second recent USC basketball player to suffer from an on-court cardiac arrest. The NBA superstar’s son collapsed during a July 24th basketball practice at the University of Southern California and was immediately rushed to the hospital and placed under close watch.
The Trojan’s condition has since been upgraded to stable and doctors have released him from intensive care.
In the summer of 2022, USC’s Vince Iwuchukwu collapsed during basketball practice after also suffering a heart attack. Athletic trainers were able to revive him and he was able to return to the court six months later.
Following James’ collapse at USC, athletes and celebrities quickly took to social media to wish the younger James well and to speculate about the cause of his malady.
Damar Hamlin of the Cincinnati Bengals tweeted “prayers” to the athlete and his family. The 25-year-old football star also suffered from cardiac arrest and collapsed on-field at Paycor Stadium during a January 2nd game against the Buffalo Bills. The athlete had to be resuscitated twice before his heart would begin beating on its own again.
Hamlin has reportedly recuperated and is currently practicing with his team, though the Bills have yet to announce if he is well enough to play in games. The football player spent several weeks traveling the country on a CPR promotional tour.
CEO of Twitter Elon Musk suggested on his platform that James’ brush with death may be related to pandemic vaccines. Musk was indirectly referencing the large numbers of seemingly healthy young people, celebrity figures, and athletes that have taken ill with blood clots and heart ailments in recent months and years.
The CEO mused that while “everything” should not be ascribed “to the vaccine,” the public should not “ascribe nothing.”
A recent study promoted by legacy media showed that post-pandemic heart attacks in people aged 25-44 have increased by 30%, though this is ascribed to COVID-19 infections, not the vaccine.
