Dawkins also shouted out the other doctors and medical professionals, and the UC Health team at the Cincinnati Hospital needs some recognition as well for working tirelessly.
Doctors acknowledged that the actions of Kellington and the others on the field were life-saving.
Doctors say Damar Hamlin initially had a pulse on the field and then lost it.
That’s when Bills assistant athletic trainer Denny Kellington started to perform CPR, ultimately saving his life.
