Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin’s sudden cardiac arrest on the football field two weeks ago has sparked action in the Green Bay Packers organization. It’s teaming up with Bellin Health to purchase and donate automated external defibrillators, or AEDs, to local organizations.
Hamlin’s collapse during a primetime game not only shocked spectators but also those in charge of National Football League franchises.
“The impact of Hamlin’s cardiac arrest and recovery caused us to reflect and take action in our community,” Packers president/CEO Mark Murphy said.
Especially because most cardiac events that occur every day in the U.S. don’t happen with medical staff on standby.
