Hamlin, hospitalized in critical condition after the terrifying ordeal, is making stunning progress. But that improvement is only possible because there were people on the scene at the game who provided CPR.
What would you do if you were the only person available to help someone in a similar situation? That exact scenario happened to John Stolnis, a tragic situation he detailed in a powerful Twitter thread.
I haven’t commented on the Damar Hamlin situation yet because it hits home personally, and I wanted to measure my words in the hopes of encouraging people to take steps to be prepared the way the first responders were when Hamlin fell to the ground last night.— John Stolnis (@JohnStolnis) January 3, 2023
Stolnis is a producer for CBN News and also a prominent Philadelphia sports blogger.
Watching Damar Hamlin collapse during Monday Night Football led Stolnis to share some painful memories, hoping people would learn basic life-saving techniques.
Listen to Stolnis share his story and explain why learning these essential techniques could very literally save someone’s life:
As for Hamlin, he’s reportedly awake and holding hands with relatives, despite still being critically ill. He FaceTimed with his teammates this morning and previously wrote a note to physicians asking if the team won the game Monday.
Continue praying for the player’s full recovery.
