Is Footballer Damar Hamlin Dead & Officials Don’t Want To Tell?
Fans are all asking “is Damar Hamlin dead?” after the American football safety for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League went into cardiac arrest on (January 2, 2022) during a Monday night game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
However, we wish rumors are only rumors and the young football player is in good health.
Since the 24-year-old safety in his second season with the Buffalo Bills was in critical condition in a hospital after going into cardiac arrest, the family of the collapsed player is asking for prayers
In a statement early Tuesday, team officials reported that Damar’s heart stopped after he was hit in a play in the first quarter. His heartbeat was revived by medical personnel on the field before he was transported to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, the Bills declared, continuing that Hamlin was undergoing “further testing and treatment” and had been sedated.
About nine minutes into the game on Monday night, Hamlin tackled Bengals receiver Tee Higgins after a 13-yard catch. Higgins rammed into Hamlin at full speed, hitting him in the head and chest. Hamlin quickly stood up, took two steps, and collapsed backward, and his body went limp.
Medical personnel administered CPR and attended to him for 10 minutes as players from both teams were visibly upset. Some shed tears on the sideline while others circled together and knelt in prayer. One medical professional appeared to administer an IV. Hamlin was later placed on a stretcher and transported to the hospital.
Fans attending Paycor Stadium, who had been largely silent through the ordeal, applauded as the ambulance departed.
Hamlin’s collapse was witnessed by millions of viewers who were tuned into the broadcast on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football.” The play was suspended for more than an hour before National Football League officials announced that the game had been postponed.

Damar Hamlin Dead or Alive Now?
“Neither coach was talking about resuming play, the players were not thinking of resuming play,” said Troy Vincent, the N.F.L.’s executive vice president for football operations. “How do you resume play after seeing such a traumatic event?”
Vincent said an emergency action plan was activated after Hamlin was injured. Each stadium has specialists, as well as an ambulance, on hand for games.
Vincent said he and other league officials spoke with Shawn Smith, the head referee at the game who in turn spoke to both head coaches about giving the players as much time as they needed.
There was no discussion of resuming play, he said, which contradicted comments by Joe Buck, ESPN’s play-by-play broadcaster, on the air. Buck stated just before players returned to the locker rooms that they were told they would have about five minutes to get ready to resume play. “That’s the word we get from the league and the word we get from down on the field, but nobody’s moving,” Buck said.
“It wasn’t about proceeding with the game,” Vincent told reporters on a conference call early Tuesday. “The competitive aspect never crossed my mind, never crossed our minds.”
Bills players and staff planned to fly back to Buffalo Monday night, a league spokesman declared.
On Tuesday, the N.F.L. announced that it did not plan to alter the schedule for the upcoming weekend, the final slate of regular season games. The Bengals were expected to host the Baltimore Ravens and the Bills were set to play the New England Patriots in Buffalo on Sunday.
