Buffalo Bills security Damar Hamlin was launched from a Cincinnati hospital Monday, per week after he suffered cardiac arrest and collapsed on the sphere throughout Monday Night Football. He is now persevering with his restoration at a Buffalo hospital.
University of Cincinnati Health Center physicians stated Hamlin flew again to Buffalo this morning.
“Mr. Hamlin has been released and returned to Buffalo. I traveled with him to the airport this morning with our UC Health air care and mobile care crew, including teammates who were with us on the field when Mr. Hamlin collapsed,” Dr. William Knight, emergency medication director, stated in a video information convention.
“I can confirm he is doing well and this is the beginning of the next stage of his recovery,” he continued.
While happy with Hamlin’s progress, Dr. Knight cautioned it’s “entirely too premature” to debate when or if he’ll play once more. “It’s that we’re really focused on his day-to-day recovery,” he stated.
Knight stated the subsequent step can be observing Hamlin “to ensure that there is no impact from the flight on his condition or on his lungs.”
He is at present in a Buffalo hospital, the physician added.
On Jan. 2, within the first quarter of a recreation between the Bills and Bengals at Paycor Stadium Hamlin, 24, suffered a cardiac arrest after tackling Tee Higgins. He obtained CPR for a number of minutes earlier than he was rushed to the hospital by ambulance.
The recreation was postponed and canceled outright later that week. However, the groups might face one another once more within the playoffs if each win this weekend.
Hamlin’s launch comes a day after tributes poured in for him across the NFL, with gamers sporting “Love for Damar” t-shirts earlier than and after video games. Following the Bills’ win over the New England Patriots, extensive receiver John Brown gave a recreation ball to assistant athletic coach Denny Kellington, who carried out CPR on Hamlin on the sphere and has been credited with saving his life.
Hamlin tweeted Monday afternoon about his standing.
“Headed home to Buffalo today with a lot of love on my heart,” he wrote. “Watching the world come together around me on Sunday was truly an amazing feeling. The same love you all have shown me is the same love that I plan to put back into the world and more. Bigger than football!”
