Players look devastated

No one knows except that he was not responsive to on field CPR. Disgusting vermin are crawling out from under their rocks already and blaming this on vaccinations over on social media sites.

As a former, much lesser player, and as a sentient human, I feel very sorry about this, naturally. But I can't help but note the commentators going on about how football is not important and only the player is. I'm feeling contempt and irony listening to that misdirection. FYI, I just tuned in while surfing channels, so I haven't experienced the build up to the current proclamations.

Game is off. They're removing equipment from the field. No official announcement yet.

During the reportage, it was said that not only was he unresponsive after 9 minutes of CPR but was being transported to the only major trauma facility in the Cincinatti area.

How is this possibly accurate, a major metro city with only ONE major trauma unit?

I am going to assume this situation is pretty bad because NFL players typically don't get too upset about injuries.

That is the only Level 1 trauma center in the Cincinnati area, there are 12 in Ohio.

Oh this is NOT good.

FWIW.. I survived my traumatic brain injury, CPR, and being defibrillated three times. There is always hope. Level 1 trauma centers are full of true miracle workers.

If you get hit in the chest at the right time, it can stop your heart. I keep hearing this idea as a reason this happened. Prayers for this poor young man to make a full recovery. I feel awful for everyone who saw that, too.

reports are that his vitals are now normal although he has been sedated so that a breathing tube could be inserted.

Hence why many Little League groups implemented mandatory use of heart guards for pitchers.

I spent three of the hardest years of my life training at University of Cincinnati Medical Center (Internal Medicine Residency). Their Cardiology department is fantastic and definitely under-rated. Several of my former classmates/colleagues work there and some are Cardiologists. I have no doubt that he will get excellent care, but it's really up to his body and brain at this point. Prayers sent.

It was pointed out on twitter last night that Chris Pronger of the NHL had this same injury from a slapshot hitting his chest. He also collapsed, required CPR and hospitalization, but recovered and played another 12 years of hall of fame level hockey.

So excellent care can lead to a full recovery from this.

A short video here will bring a tear to your eye: [twitter.com]

It shows Hamlin taking a moment to hug his mom on the sidelines (pregame or practice - not sure) on Nov 30. Look at the pride on that woman's face!

Wish them the best
