NFL Star Damar Hamlin Suffers Heart Attack on Field during Bills-Bengals Game

NFL star Damar Hamlin suffered a massive heart attack on the field during Monday night’s game between Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals.

The 24-year-old Bills safety collapsed on the field during tonight’s football game and was administered CPR on the field for nine minutes.

He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital where he is reportedly in critical condition.

The NFL postponed the Bills-Bengals game in response.

“No one’s been through this,” ex-NFL quarterback Troy Aikman and current ESPN announcer said.

“I’ve never seen anything like it, either.”

After about 21 minutes, officials temporarily suspended the game.

Just before 10 pm, the game was officially postponed.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell confirmed the postponement in an official statement on behalf of the league.

“Our thoughts are with Damar and the Buffalo Bills,” the NFL said.

“We will provide more information as it becomes available.

A tweet from the Pitt football account was simple and clear: “Damar Hamlin is the best of us.

“We love you, 3. Praying for you.”

Hamlin’s family was at the game when he collapsed and his mother Nina traveled with him to the hospital in the ambulance, reports ESPN.

About 100 Bills fans and a few Bengals fans gathered on a corner one block from the hospital’s emergency room entrance, some of them holding candles.

The Bills later tweeted: “Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest following a hit in our game versus the Bengals.

“His heartbeat was restored on the field and he was transferred to the UC Medical Center for further testing and treatment.

“He is currently sedated and listed in critical condition.”
