Damar Hamlin’s doctors credit training staff with ‘responding and saving his life’ (video)

It felt like the eyes of the world were on Dr. William Knight and Dr. Tim Pritts as they provided updates on the health of Buffalo Bills defense attorney Damar Hamlin.

That said, it was mostly positive news.

Hours after the incident, the team confirmed the 24-year-old suffered cardiac arrest during an NFL game against the Bengals on Monday.

That competition has now reportedly been canceled entirely and Hamlin is improving. UC Medical Center acknowledged he still has a long way to go before making a full recovery.

And the medical duo made sure that couldn’t be done without the Bills training staff.

dr Pritts noted that the quick work of the on-site medical staff worked wonders for Hamlin, calling it “life-saving.”

Reportedly, Buffalo’s assistant athletic trainer, Denny Kellington, was the one who performed CPR on Hamlin. Kellington’s efforts have been described as “absolutely vital” to the effort to save Hamlin.

More information from Dr. Knight and Pritts can be found in the attached WKBW-TV clip below from their video call on Thursday:
