Damar Hamlin on what caused his heart failure: ‘Uhm … uhm’

This story was originally published by the WND News Center.

Damar Hamlin of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills is unique. He’s a pro football player whose heart stopped on the field, and through the immediate application of CPR, and, in his words, “just God,” he’s back.

Not on the field yet.

On the critical question of what caused his cardiac arrest, however, he was silent.

Asked by Strahan, Hamlin responded with a loooong pause.


Then another looong pause.


Eventually, he says, “That’s something I want to stay away from.”

Of course, multitudes of young and athletic men and boys across America have been reporting heart issues – and some have been dying – after they have taken the experimental COVID-19 shots that have been linked to myocarditis, and other heart ailments.

Newsweek reported his interview “provoked a flurry of new conspiracy theories on social media as to whether the COVID-19 vaccine was to blame for Hamlin’s collapse and medical attention.”

“It’s quite clear that the reason Damar Hamlin won’t disclose what nearly killed him is that what nearly killed him was the COVID-19 vaccine,” tweeted One America News Network host Addison Smith.

Hamlin, a healthy, 24-year-old at the time of his heart failure six weeks ago, said he’d been feeling “great” going into the game.

He said he doesn’t want to talk about the attack itself, which left him collapsed on the field.

He’s thankful for the trainer who applied for CPR immediately.

When he woke, he said, the doctors told him he “won the game of life.”

“That put things in perspective for me.”

He said the reason he survived? “Just God. A blessing. I’m thankful He gave me a second chance.”

Will he return to the field?

“I’m allowing it to be in God’s hands. It’s a long road.”
