Damar Hamlin: Buffalo Bills star receives CPR on field after violent fall during NFL game | US News

American football star Damar Hamlin has been taken to hospital after collapsing violently on the field during an NFL game.

Paramedics rushed to Cincinnati’s ballpark on Monday and performed CPR on the Buffalo Bills player for about ten minutes after he fell suddenly to the chest after a tackle hit him.

The young player managed to stand up, but then fell backwards, lying motionless.

An ambulance rolled onto the field, the players watched dumbfounded, and the crowd fell silent.

Buffalo Bills head coach Sean McDermott led the team in prayer as the ambulance left the stadium. Many of the 24-year-old Hamlin’s teammates were in tears, and his mother was also in the crowd watching.

She is believed to have been able to ride with him in an ambulance en route to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, a trauma center two miles from the stadium.

The game is suspended.

The football world was shocked at Euro 2020 when Denmark national team and current Manchester United player Christian Eriksen also collapsed on the pitch.
