There has been no shortage of love and affection shown for Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin, who is in critical condition in a Cincinnati hospital after suffering cardiac arrest and having his heartbeat restored during Monday night’s postponed game with the Bengals.
Fans of both teams converged on University of Cincinnati Medical Center to hold a vigil overnight in the rain. They gathered on a corner a block from the emergency room entrance with some of them holding candles.
