LeBron James and his family were able to enjoy the calm before the storm.
The NBA player, 38, went to a Los Angeles Dodgers game on Saturday, August 19, with his wife Savannah James, 36, and their children Bronny, 18, Bryce, 16, and Zhuri, 8, one day before the stadium flooded due to Hurricane Hilary.
LeBron posted a brief video to his Instagram Stories of himself and his two sons enjoying the game and the lovely pre-hurricane weather in the stands.
This was Bronny’s first outing since he was hospitalized on July 24 after suffering a heart arrest. In his father’s video, the 18-year-old appeared cheerful and healthy at the game.
The James family attended the game to witness LeBron get a special bobblehead from the Dodgers in recognition of his achievements with the Los Angeles Lakers.
LeBron captured footage of his personalized bobblehead in the stands for his Instagram Stories. Bronny’s team, USC Men’s Basketball, shared a video of LeBron and his family coming to the game, adding, “Bronny pulled up to the @Dodgers game to get dad’s bobblehead!”
The following day, the Dodgers stadium was submerged in water as a result of Hurricane Hilary, which made landfall in Southern California on Sunday.
According to a source, the storm severely damaged the stadium and parking lot. The ballpark was “covered in water.”
The Dodgers’ game against the Miami Marlins was initially set for Sunday, but owing to the storm, it was moved to the day before.
As fans are aware, LeBron and his family were involved in a frightening circumstance with Bronny last month.
The teenager fainted during a USC basketball session and was transported to Beverly Hills’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
On July 25, the James family acknowledged Bronny’s health crisis in a statement. “Yesterday, while practicing, Bronny James suffered a cardiac arrest,” according to the statement.
“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 the media when there is more information.”
Bronny made a full recovery in the hospital and was released on July 27. LeBron broke his quiet earlier that day, tweeting, “I want to thank the countless people sending my family love and prayers.”
“Everyone is doing great,” he added without naming Bronny. We have our family together, safe and healthy, and we can feel your love. Will have more to say when we’re ready, but I wanted to tell everyone how much your support has meant to all of us!”
On Friday, July 28, Bronny was seen in public for the first time since his medical emergency. He went out to dinner with his mom and siblings in Santa Monica.
