Damar Hamlin, a 24-year-old safety for the Buffalo Bills, collapsed on the field during the Monday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
What was seen on national television was Hamlin going in for a tackle and taking a hard hit. Hamlin gets up from the hit, takes a few steps, and then collapses.
Damar Hamlin Collapses on the Field During Monday Night Football Game
Immediately after he hit the ground, trainers and first responders immediately tended to Hamlin as an ambulance was brought onto the field. For minutes, CPR was administered to Hamlin as his teammates and the world watched in disbelief.
It was a scene unlock any football player, coach, and fan had ever seen.
Hamlin was eventually given oxygen and placed into the ambulance. Immediately after Hamlin was rushed to the hospital, the teams made the call to temporarily suspend the game.
No further details are known at this time. Our thoughts and prayers are with Hamlin, his family, and the rest of the Buffalo Bills organization.
