The Buffalo Bills game against the Cincinnati Bengals has been suspended. This was all after Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin suffered a terrifying injury.

According to The Democrat and Chronicle, the safety was injured in the first quarter of the Bills game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football:

Hamlin tackled Cincinnati wide receiver Tee Higgins, got to his feet and then crumpled to the ground. A stretcher and ambulance came onto the field as most of the Bills' roster came off the sideline to kneel or stand around Hamlin. First responders administered CPR to Hamlin on the field. Hamlin was given oxygen as he was loaded into an ambulance. He was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center."

Hamlin was selected in the sixth round with the No. 212 overall pick by the Buffalo Bills out of the University of Pittsburgh.

As of 1:57AM EST, TMZ reports Hamlin is currently in critical condition at a nearby hospital:

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.

We will update you on his health as this story progresses.

With what we have learned, it is certain that CPR on the field was able to at least get Hamlin to the hospital.

Why CPR Is Important, And You Need To Learn It

CPR, or Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, is an emergency lifesaving procedure performed when the heart stops beating. According to the American Heart Association, immediate CPR can double or triple chances of survival after cardiac arrest.

The CDC reports that currently, about 9 in 10 people who have cardiac arrest outside the hospital die. CPR can help improve those odds.

If it is performed in the first few minutes of cardiac arrest, CPR can double or triple a person's chance of survival.

Take a course to learn the lifesaving skills of CPR, first aid, how to use an AED, and more. This skill could help you save lives. You never know when it's needed. For example, Damar is only 24. Who would think you need to use CPR on a 24 year old?
