Damar Hamlin is well-known for playing with the National Football League’s Buffalo Bills. Fans will be astonished to know that Damar collapsed in the midst of the game. As a result, the NFL game between the Bengals and the Bills got suspended.

Damar Hamlin collapsed during the opening period of a Monday Night Football game in Cincinnati between the Bengals and Bills. Hamlin received CPR for over ten minutes before an ambulance arrived on the playing field.

Coaches and emotional players stood by, and the Bills knelt over to pray. Both teams went back to their locker rooms when the game was called off. They were joined by their colleagues in the network studio in New York and the broadcast team that was calling the game.

24-year-old Hamlin struck a receiver, got to his feet, and then toppled over onto his back. The Buffalo Bills tweeted in reference to the player and to Bills supporters, “Bills Mafia is with you, @HamlinIsland.”

For Hamlin’s recovery, a lot of responses were made by the teams, including the Bengals. In the first quarter, with 5:58 remaining, the game was momentarily stopped. The players’ union, the NFL Players Association, sent Hamlin “big prayers & love” via Twitter.

Hamlin was selected in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL draft and is a native of McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania, which is close to Pittsburgh. Thirsty wishes Hamlin makes a speedy recovery. Keep checking Thirsty for more updates.
