Bronny James: Officials release frantic 911 call after USC freshman’s cardiac arrest

The Los Angeles Fire Department Friday released the 911 call after the University of Southern California freshman Bronny James, son of NBA superstar LeBron James, collapsed and went into cardiac arrest during basketball practice at the Galen Center earlier this week.

 "We need an ambulance immediately," the caller is heard telling the 911 operator. 

"Listen…listen to me," he said. "We need an ambulance here now."

"We’re going to send help," the operator responds. 

The operator then instructs the caller to get next to the patient. 

"Is there a doctor on scene with him or a registered nurse?" the operator asks, and the caller responds "No."

The operator then tells the caller that fire department paramedics were already on the way. Authorities have not released the caller's identity. 

Once first responders arrived, Bronny James was rushed to the hospital and treated in the intensive care unit. Health officials said James was later stabilized and moved out of the ICU.
