BREAKING NEWS: Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, 24, received CPR after collapsing in shocking on-field scenes in the first quarter against Cincinnati Bengals
Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin was revived after collapsing on the field against the Cincinnati Bengals during Monday Night Football.
Hamlin tackled Bengals receiver Tee Higgins in the first quarter and got up briefly before falling backwards to the ground.
An ambulance sped onto the field to treat the security, who was taken away and immobilized in the vehicle.
During the lengthy and frightening ordeal, the ESPN Monday Night Football show was cut short for commercials four times while Hamlin was being treated.
Hamlin was put on oxygen in the ambulance, and the game was eventually temporarily suspended as both teams returned to their respective locker rooms.
Not surprisingly, both sides appeared extremely shocked by the situation, with the emotions of Hamlin’s teammates Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen being shown on camera.
Emotions also ran high on the ESPN broadcast team when analyst Booger offered McFarland an important perspective.
When you bring out CPR, try to help someone breathe. We’re talking about life or death now,’ he said.
‘That is real. What we do is just a game. When it comes to life and death, it’s very different.”
