Bills’ Damar Hamlin was given CPR after collapsing on the pitch and suffering a suspected cardiac arrest.
Medics rushed on to the field in Cincinnati on Monday after the young footballer collapsed in the middle of a game.
The Buffalo Bills star was hit in the chest with a tackle, but appeared to get back to his feet and adjust his helmet.
He then tragically began to stumble backwards and collapsed to the ground.
CPR was carried out on the footballer for almost 10 minutes before he was transported to hospital.
