Last night, December 12, 2023, Buffalo Bills player Dummer Hamlin was seriously injured. Cardiac arrest in the field.
During the first quarter of his NFL game against the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals, Hamlin collided with another player, got up, and fell to the ground.
The 24-year-old's heart stopped beating when paramedics rushed to the scene to see what was going on. They were able to stabilize his heartbeat on his CPR and were taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
The game was suspended during the collapse and now he is being held off by the NFL. The Buffalo Bills also released an official statement, saying, "Dummer Hamlin went into cardiac arrest after being hit in the game against the Bengals...he is currently sedated and in critical condition."
Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins appeared to be a regular tackle, but fear spread to all players and spectators when Hamlin hit the ground.
Tee Higgins, along with other Bengals players and the Bengals president, issued a statement expressing concern and support for Hamlin and his family.
NFL fans are looking for ways to support Hamlin's family and friends in any way possible during this sad and terrifying time.
Hamlin's GoFundMe, which Hamlin started in December, has gone from about $2,900 to $4 million since his cardiac arrest. People around the world are showing their support for Hamlin and other NFL teams.
The New England Patriots, who were due to go to Buffalo for both teams' season finale, along with the rest of his NFL team, have canceled media availability.
