Damar Hamlin’s injury really sent shock waves around the world. The way he collapsed on the field, right from the players on the field to everyone watching at home, absolutely everyone was left extremely terrified.

Thankfully, the man is an absolute fighter and is recovering at a miraculous speed. Recently, his breathing tube was removed and he also FaceTimed his team while they were having a meeting.

“Love you boys,” was his message for his mates who were delighted to see their brother recovering so quickly. This really shows that great things can happen if the world unites for a good cause.

While it was indeed horrific to witness Damar’s fall, the way even rival fans surrounded the UC medical facility, where he is getting treatment, is just fantastic to see.
