Damar Hamlin Suffers Cardiac Arrest
On Jan 3rd, 2023, the Buffalo Bills played versus the Cincinnati Bengals. What started as a seemingly casual game turned into a real drama when Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field. It happened during the first quarter of the game. The NFL player was given medical treatment for close to 20 minutes before being taken to the hospital. Fans got to watch the whole thing, as the game was nationally televised.
Doctors remain uncertain about what actually caused the accident. That’s why the player still undergoes a variety of tests to determine the reason. What they remain unwavering about is discussing his future on the football field. It’s too early to make any dramatic suggestions about whether or not he’ll be able to play again.
Hamlin’s Condition Improves
Doctors who treated Damar Hamlin got his condition under control, and now he’s in fair or good condition. That’s why he got the green light to fly home from Cincinnati to Buffalo, where, as mentioned earlier, he’ll continue his recovery.
The player achieved a number of key milestones, including tolerating a regular diet and walking in the intensive care unit with assistance from doctors and nurses. He also had his breathing tube removed on Friday. Doctors say he’s walking normally but remains weak. Also, his brain and neurologic functions are normal.
Damar Hamlin has been active on social media, expressing his gratitude for the support he’s received from fellow players and fans.
