Update on Damar Hamlin: He Is Awake and Communicating


Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin woke up for the first time after collapsing during an NFL game and wrote a note on a piece of paper: “Did we win?”


Damar Hamlin, who suffered a severe cardiac arrest on the field during the big game on Monday night, is showing steady and remarkable progress. He is still in critical condition but appears to be neurologically intact. His agent told CNN that he is awake, holding hands with his family, and his first words were to ask who won the game. His doctors say he can follow commands and can communicate by writing.

CNN made it about politics.

Thank you M. Dowling for closely following this story.

Aside: I can remember as a little league baseball coach about 1980 being told to coach the boys not to open up to a pitch that could hit them in the chest because a hard blow to the heart had previously cased deaths by stopping the heart.
That also makes the point the everyone should be taught emergency first aid.
