Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin pumps up crowd during playoff game

It was back on January 2 that Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest in the first quarter of their game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Hamlin collapsed on the ground after being hit by Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins. The former Pittsburgh star fell to the ground and was given CPR before being transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical center.

Amazingly, Hamlin has recovered since the sary incident. He was released from the hospital days after the medical emergency and just recently found himself back in Buffalo. In fact, Hamlin was a mainstay at the Bills’ facility leading up to their AFC Divisional Playoff game against the aforementioned Bengals on Sunday.

What’s even more awesome is the fact that Damar Hamlin was on hand for the game Sunday. Below, you will see him pumping up the crowd at Highmark Stadium in Western New York.

What an absolutely amazing turnaround for the young safety. Sure Hamlin has a long road to recovery and is still reliant on oxygen. But the young man continues to improve on a never-ending loop. His presence around the Bills have magnified that further.

“He comes in, and I know he just started today or yesterday, just trying to get back to a little bit of a routine and just get himself acclimated again. And taking it one step, one baby step, at a time.”
