The announcer say nothing like this has ever happened before , but there was an NFL player who died during a game 51 years ago. 

Chuck Hughes

Charles Frederick Hughes   (March 2, 1943 – October 24, 1971) was an   American football   player, a   wide receiver   in the   National Football League   from   1967   to   1971 . He is, to date, the only NFL player to die on the field during a game. [1]

On October 24, 1971, the   Lions   hosted the   Chicago Bears   at   Tiger Stadium . Late in the 4th quarter, with Detroit trailing 28–23, the Lions were driving into Chicago territory and Hughes, who entered the game as an injury replacement, caught a pass from quarterback   Greg Landry   for 32 yards and a first down at the Bears' 37-yard line.

Three plays later, Landry threw a pass that   tight end   Charlie Sanders   dropped near the end zone. Hughes, a decoy on the play, began running back to the huddle with 1:02 showing on the clock. Suddenly, he dropped to the turf clutching his chest around the 20-yard line. [3]   Hughes collapsed near Bears   linebacker   Dick Butkus , who saw him begin to convulse violently on the field. Butkus motioned to the sideline frantically to get Hughes assistance. [6]

TBI at best? Honestly looks like his body more or less did what it had been trained everyday to do over the last 16 years before it realized the brain wasn't sending any orders.

Seems likely or maybe an aneurysm. I hope he makes it.

Those little bastards can happen at any time and there is absolutely no warning. I seem to recall a baseball player a few years back, mid twenties and no medical conditions, had an aneurysm in the dugout. Luckily for him medical personnel were on him within 30 seconds and saved his life. 

Not saying that is what happened here, but I wouldn't be shocked. It seems obvious that this is a brain type injury though, only the brain or heart makes a person go down like that.

Or possibly commotio cordis. Sometimes a blow to the chest can cause cardiac arrythmias or arrest. It happened a few years ago here to a high school baseball player. Two outfielders were going after a fly ball. Neither called it, and they collided. One didn't get up. CPR was started immediately, thanks to EMTs being on the scene already, and they were able to revive him.

I know the NFL is widely known for doing the right thing in most, if not all situations, but please just this once list the motherfucker as a tie and call it. Dude may well have died on the field. Sometimes, the game shouldn't go on.

I dont think it would be much of a game even they do restart it. What happened would cast a shadow over every play.

I was watching the game when it happened. They may not continue the game and the announcers are close to being speechless and don't want to continue until they hear what the player's condition is.

I think the guy is fighting for his life. The hospital lists his condition as critical.

Has this been verified or is this simply a sports announcer pulling something out to sound good?  I cannot find any info where he's not breathing.  He was given oxygen on the field, SOP for a cardiac event.  But I'm not finding any information to verify this so I think it's just too early to call that he's gone.

Not looking good. Generally if a person is not breathing on their own there isn't much shot at survival.

Skimming through twitter a little, there are a number of truly sick comments about this. 

One ahole said it happened to the player because he was vaccinated.

The sick fucks on the far right are claiming he is the victim of "died suddenly" which is a term they use to claim that people just collapse and die due to getting the vaccine. The hashtag #DiedSuddenly specifically refers to the vaccine.  Our society needs to wake up to the psychic poison the far right is injecting in to our culture.

I don't know if I would call Behar main stream. She is a little wacky for my taste.

I like football. I don't watch it as much as I use to. Was never really into college ball though.

She represents the liberal viewpoint on a network talk show.  She's much more mainstream than the internet posters John is citing.

And I should have added heterosexual men.  It's bad because heterosexual, conservative men like it. I suppose the only thing surprising is she didn't add white men for the trifecta.

Didn't watch the game- just saw replay that was in the link.

Before watching it I was expecting that this was a Ryan Shazier type of thing. Lead with the head on the tackle- and suffer spinal/nerve damage resulting in paralysis. I had heard he was taken to the same hospital and specialists that Shazier was. After watching the video several times it was a clean play- yes the collision is violent. The running back put his shoulder pad directly in the chest; the tackler kept his head up and body square. The running back's helmet may have caught the tackler a glancing blow on the chin; but it didn't look like it was enough to knock anyone out. 

Here is an update on his condition.

  Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest on the field Monday night, according to the Buffalo Bills, who provided an update on his condition. Thankfully, Damar's heartbeat was restored before he left the field in an ambulance.

Hamlin is currently at UC Medical Center -- a level-one trauma facility -- where he's receiving treatment and undergoing testing.

The Bills say Damar, who is sedated, is in critical condition.

Hopefully he makes a full recovery.

I know he is friends with Kenny Pickett R QB for the Steelers- but you couldn't telund very good. l it from this play.

As for stopping the game. I am Goodell's biggest critic. I really don't think he had anything to do with the decision. I believe the players and coaches gave the NFL the big FU when asked to continue the game. Left with no other choice the NFL made the "correct" decision.

My nephew, 44 years old, in great shape had a cardiac arrest last August. He was unvaccinated, totally against the covid shots, whenever anyone in our family became sick or had health issues, he would say it was due to the vaccinations...until he had cardiac arrest. It was late at night, he was in bed, his wife heard him gasp, then nothing. She called 911 and they walked her and their oldest son, 15, through CPR until EMTs arrived. He was incubated, put into a coma, lowered his body temperature. We were all praying, his church was praying, prayer chains started round the clock. He had cardiac arrest about 11 pm Friday night, by Sunday morning he was off incubation, out of coma, talking. He had a monitoring device placed near his heart, but he is doing OK. 

Two things I take away from this incident, prayer does work, even though I am not "religious", as in don't attend church or subscribe to any specific dogma, I am spiritual. Second thing, all those who immediately point to covid shots as cause are usually wrong. 

Just want to mention nephew is avid Trump supporter for one reason, anti-abortion.

Last December, 2021 , I had a heart attack. In the emergency room a cardiologist told me "you have an extremely weak heart right now" (12% ejection fraction) with an 80% blockage to the major heart artery. They decided to put stints in that artery and another one that was blocked. While I was in the prep room for the heart procedure I started having extreme difficulty breathing. The joint went in full "stat" mode which I was only vaguely aware of because I couldnt breathe. After a few minutes they got me stabilized and breathing well enough through a C-PAP mask. 

I was taken to the cardiac intensive care unit , which is about as serious as it gets in a hospital outside of the operating room. The cardiologist told my brother that he was within 30 seconds of intubating me. I'm glad those 30 seconds werent needed. People who are intubated for heart issues often have a negative prognosis. 

I hope this young man makes it. 

They need to find out if he had a previously undiscovered heart issue or if it was solely caused by the trauma of a football collision.

During the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 1998 while playing for the St. Louis Blues, Chris Pronger took a shot off his chest which led to him collapsing on the ice and losing consciousness.

Pronger, like Hamlin, suffered commotio cordis due to the blunt impact of the puck hitting him at a high speed and causing his heart to skip a beat.
