Haven’t seen this in decades. Bills Bengals game suspended as a player had to be given CPR on the field and was taken away in an ambulance.
Announcers are saying all the humanitarian things, but IDK what will happen. The game has playoff implications for both teams, so cancelling it would be unprecedented. It could even give KC the #1 seed.
I remember seeing a receiver (I think Michael Irving) come down directly on his head.
He bounced straight up and it was one of the scariest I had ever saw. It ended up being a perfect position where he wasn’t hurt at all.
Honestly…been a die hard sports fan for 30 years. This was a very tough thing to watch on TV. It reminded me of the Hank Gathers tragedy from the 1990 college basketball season. The fact that no positive news has been release in 2 hours is not good.
This article has a tweet from a person who says he is Hamlin’s marketing agent. I saw another tweet where the person said he did not know this person or how accurate the info was and that he would wait for the hospital to update Hamlin’s condition.
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.
