With videoIn the United States, the American football match between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals was stopped on Monday, when one of the Buffalo Bills players collapsed on the field and did not regain consciousness. His situation is critical.
24-year-old Damar Hamelin made a save from an opposing player and then got up again. But after a few seconds he fell to the ground and lay motionless. He was treated in the field by medical staff and transported to the hospital by ambulance about fifteen minutes later.
The team reported, “Dammar Hamlin suffered a cardiac arrest after suffering a hit in our game against the Bengals.” “His heart rate was restored on the field and he was transported to UCLA Medical Center for further evaluation and treatment. He is currently unconscious and in critical condition.”
There was panic on the faces of the players of both teams. Some players knelt on the field to pray for their teammate. The match was stopped permanently.
“No one has ever experienced this before,” former NFL quarterback Troy Aikman said during the ESPN broadcast. “I've never seen anything like this in my life.”
Eriksen football player
Eighteen months ago, the football world was shocked by a similar incident. In the World Cup match between Denmark and Finland, Danish footballer Christian Eriksen suffered a cardiac arrest. He also suddenly collapsed on the field. The former Ajax player is now back on the field. He plays under Erik ten Hag at Manchester United. He also played for Denmark in the World Cup in Qatar.
An NFL board member said Hamlin's condition remains critical. “Our thoughts are with Damar and the Buffalo Bills. “We'll let you know as soon as we get more information,” Roger Goodell said. Hamlin's family thanked fans around the world for their support. The Bills changed their profile picture to Hamlin's jersey number, 3, on social media.
The National Football League said the game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills will not resume this week.
