Claim : Bronny James Almost Died From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest!

Right after news broke that Bronny James collapsed from a cardiac arrest during basketball practice with his team, some people immediately claimed or suggested that LeBron James’ older son was suffering from myocarditis caused by the COVID-19 vaccine, or that his cardiac arrest was caused by the COVID-19 vaccine.

Elon MuskWe 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.

Some young people survive vaccine injury – 13 cases that did!

OutKick : Elon Musk is right to ask and wonder if the Covid vaccine contributed to Bronny James’ cardiac arrest.

We need to know why this keeps happening to young healthy adults.

Did Bronny James Almost Die From Vaccine Cardiac Arrest?!


Bronny James : Cardiac Arrest Was Caused By Heart Defect!

Born LeBron Raymone James Jr. on October 6, 2004, Bronny James is the eldest son of NBA superstar, LeBron James, and a basketball player for the University of Southern California (USC) Trojans team.

At approximately 9:26 AM PDT on Monday, July 24, 2023, Bronny James collapsed while practicing with his team at the USC Galen Center. He was rushed by ambulance to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, and confirmed to have suffered from a cardiac arrest.

By the time news broke on Tuesday, July 25, Bronny James was in stable condition, and had already been released from intensive care. A spokesperson for his family said:

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. 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.

On Friday, August 25, 2023, the James family announced in a statement, that Bronny James was found to have a congenital heart defect that likely caused his sudden cardiac arrest on the basketball court:

After a comprehensive initial evaluation at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center led by Dr. Merije Chukumerije and follow-up evaluations at the Mayo Clinic led by Dr. Michael J. Ackerman and Atlantic Health/Morristown Medical Center led by Dr. Matthew W. Martinez, the probable cause of Mr. James’ sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) has been identified. 

It is an anatomically and functionally significant Congenital Heart Defect which can and will be treated.

We are very confident in Bronny’s full recovery and return to basketball in the very near future. We will continue to provide updates to media and respectfully reiterate the family’s request for privacy.

The statement did not mention the type of congenital heart defect Bronny James has, but heart defects can definitely cause sudden cardiac arrest, especially during strenuous exercise or activity.

But to be clear – Bronny James was born with the heart defect (that’s what congenital means). He did not develop it from getting the COVID-19 vaccines.

Notably, the statement also did not mention myocarditis – a heart condition associated with mRNA vaccines, that anti-vaccination activists are suggesting caused his cardiac arrest.

As I pointed out earlier, Bronny James underwent cardiac screening several months earlier, as part of testing for prospective NBA players. The screening included a transthroracic echocardiogram, which looks at blood flow through the heart and its valves, and an electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG), which shows the heart’s electrical activity.

Both heart screenings came back with normal results. This rules out the possibility that Bronny James was suffering from myocarditis, as Elon Musk and other people have suggested. In fact, it would be quite impossible for Bronny James to practice with his team if he was suffering from myocarditis, as he would be experiencing chest pain, fatigue, and breathing difficulties, another other symptoms.


Cardiac Arrest Is Common In Young Athletes Like Bronny James

Anti-vaccination activists often claim that young, healthy people do not suddenly collapse from cardiac arrest. The truth is many young athletes do suddenly collapse from sudden cardiac arrest, and many don’t survive unless they receive medical attention quickly.

The United States alone records over half a million cases of sudden cardiac arrest cases every year – an incidence of about 130 per 100,000 individuals per year. Many people have undiagnosed heart conditions that may not produce noticeable symptoms in daily life, but could result in sudden cardiac arrest at any time.

The risk of developing sudden cardiac arrest increases during strenuous activities, which is why many US states enacted laws requiring automated external defibrillators (AED) to be made available in health clubs, gyms, schools, and other public places.

And no, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause cardiac arrests, no matter what anti-vaccination activists may claim.

Neither can COVID-19 vaccines prevent people from getting cardiac arrests, or dying from them.

Ultimately, Bronny James joins a long list of athletes whose injuries / deathswere ultimate proven to be wrongly blamed on the COVID-19 vaccines. Here are other examples:

Will these anti-vaccination activists apologise for lying to you? Nope! They will just move on to the next death or tragedy…
