Hamlin discharged from hospital

LOS ANGELES (AFP) — Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin was discharged from hospital in Cincinnati on Monday, just a week after suffering a cardiac arrest during a National Football League game, medical staff confirmed.

Hamlin was released from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center and flew to Buffalo where he will continue his recovery at another hospital.

“We are thrilled and proud to share that Damar Hamlin has been released from the hospital and returned to Buffalo,” UC Medical Center said.

“He is doing well and this is the next stage of his recovery.”

In separate posts on Twitter, Hamlin thanked medical staff in Cincinnati while paying tribute to the outpouring of goodwill across the sporting world.

“Grateful for the awesome care I received at UCMC,” Hamlin wrote, adding that staff at his new hospital, Buffalo General Medical Center, have “already made me feel at home.”

“Watching the world come together around me on Sunday was truly an amazing feeling,” Hamlin added in a separate tweet.

“The same love you all have shown me is the same love that I plan to put back into the world ‘n more.”

The 24-year-old safety was left in critical condition last Monday after collapsing during the Bills’ clash with the Cincinnati Bengals, forcing the abandonment of the game.

The scary incident shocked the sports world and once again drew more scrutiny on the physically punishing nature of America’s most popular sport.

Hamlin had made steady progress since being admitted to hospital last week, regaining consciousness on Wednesday before addressing team-mates via a video call on Friday.

UC Medical Center physician William Knight, who accompanied Hamlin to the airport before his transfer to Buffalo on Monday, cautioned it was still too early to say whether the Bills player would resurrect his NFL career.
