Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin has been taken off a breathing machine and is showing ‘remarkable improvement.’ He asked doctors who won the game.
The Buffalo Bills safety collapsed after taking a hard hit during Monday Night Football and was still unresponsive after nine minutes of emergency CPR on the field.
Hamlin, 24, was cut out of his uniform and rushed to University of Cincinnati Medical Center where he was listed in critical condition.
In an update on his condition, doctors believe he suffered from a condition called commotio cordis, in which a severe blow to the chest causes the heart to stop. Hamlin has been ‘intubated’ — in layman’s terms, he is on a breathing machine.
He had a pulse but was on a breathing machine. Family, friends and the entire NFL community are praying for his survival.

I was watching when it happened. I knew the game had to be postponed. The shock of knowing he had actually died on the field was traumatic.
