Medical personnel rushed on to the field to treat Damar, immediately calling for a defibrillator and oxygen as they tried to bring this young man back to life. Bills trainer Denny Kellington administered CPR, and after nearly 10 minutes, they were able to restart his heart, give him oxygen and get him loaded into an ambulance.
When he arrived at the hospital, his heart stopped again.
For a second time, medical professionals were able to restart his heart, and he was sedated, intubated, and placed on a ventilator, unable to breathe on his own.
And while we still don’t know what may have caused this tragic series of events, what we do know is that for a moment, the entire country came together.
Bengals fans, Bills fans, football fans, people that hate sports, men, women, black, white, Democrats, Republicans… folks across the country came together to pray for Damar, and send their positive wishes.
And many not only opened up their hearts, but opened up their wallets as well, collectively donating over $8 million dollars to Damar’s charity.
And those prayers were answered:
The love is felt, & extremely real. No matter race or religion everybody coming together in prayer! 🙏❤️
