NFL Athlete Damar Hamlin, 24, Suffered a Cardiac Arrest on Field 🥕
Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field, was administered CPR by medics and put into an ambulance and rushed to an area hospital during a “Monday Night Football” game in Cincinnati.
The concern is for the person, not the game. Hope Hamlin is ok. Reaction seemed like a heart issue from the chest contusion. Other than a hospital, no better place to collapse 🙏🙏🙏 pic.twitter.com/PFW3ZwxcRY

“His vitals are back to normal and they have put him to sleep to put a breathing tube down his throat,” Jordon Rooney, Hamlin’s marketing representative at Jaster Athletes, wrote on Twitter in an update about an hour after the league’s statement. “They are currently running tests. We will provide updates as we have them.”

Hamlin was taken two miles away to the University of Cincinnati Level I trauma center in what was treated as a life-or-death emergency. The ambulance left Paycor Stadium about 30 minutes after the emergency began when Hamlin made a first-quarter tackle on Bengals receiver Tee Higgins but appeared to take the brunt of the hit.
The game was suspended with the Bengals leading, 7-3, after a temporary delay of more than an hour.
He had indeed been injected with synthetic mRNA. 🙏🏼
