Damar Hamlin made a name for himself as the Buffalo Bills’ safety as part of the National Football League. Hamlin has been in the news for the past couple of days after he experienced a cardiac arrest on the field during Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. In fact, Hamlin’s heart stopped while he was at the hospital.

Damar Hamlin has been in a critical health situation since Monday. The 24-year-old defensive back was rushed to a hospital after going into cardiac arrest during the game. A GoFundMe was launched in his name, which has already brought in over $3 million so far.

According to TMZ, Hamlin’s uncle, Dorrian Glenn, spoke to CNN outside the Cincinnati hospital. Glenn revealed that his nephew’s heart stopped for a second time while at the hospital. Thankfully, medical personnel were able to restart his heart.

“He’s still sedated right now. They just want him to have a better chance of recovering better. So they felt if he was sedated, his body can recover a lot faster than if he was awoke and possibly cause other complications.”

Glenn said Hamlin is using 50% of a ventilator, which is a remarkable improvement. Hamlin’s uncle added that he suffered lung damage, but hopes Hamlin will be able to breathe on his own again. He added that doctors have positioned on his stomach in an effort to relieve pressure on his lungs.

“I just want to show my gratitude for the medical staff that were on hand, because if not for them, my nephew probably wouldn’t even be here.”

A trading card featuring Damar Hamlin is selling for an insane price now. Regarding Damar Hamlin’s condition, he is continuing to fight for his life. We will continue to pray for his eventual recovery and in the meantime, will keep you updated on this developing story right here at Thirsty.
