Damar Hamlin has been released from hospital in Cincinnati, 7 days after cardiac arrest on the field

On Monday, Damar Hamlin has been released from the Cincinnati hospital and taken to a Buffalo hospital. This is just one week after his heart stopped, and he collapsed on the NFL field during the game. The Buffalo Bill’s safety had to be resuscitated before taken to a hospital. The NFL game was discontinued.

Dr. William A. Knight said that he accompanied Hamlin to the airport, where he flew to Buffalo. Hamlin was admired to m a hospital in Buffalo, according to the UC Medical Center doctor from Cincinnati.

“He is doing well and this is the beginning of the next stage of his recovery,” said Dr. Knight. “It is entirely too premature to discuss, not only his football; it’s that we’re really focused on his day-to-day recovery.”

Knight reported that Hamlin met “a number of key milestones” while he was recovering. He said that Hamlin was up walking and engaged in both physical and occupational therapy.

“Grateful for the awesome care I received at UCMC. Happy to be back in Buffalo. The docs and nurses at Buffalo General have already made me feel at home!” Hamlin posted on Twitter Monday.
