Outside of being in a hospital itself, being at a professional sporting event may have been the most fortunate place for Hamlin to go into cardiac arrest, as Advanced Life Support was by his side within seconds. One member of Buffalo’s support staff has been singled out for his quick reaction to Hamlin’s condition. Bills assistant athletic trainer Denny Kellington has been with the team since 2017 and was one of the first medical responders to reach Hamlin. Kellington reportedly almost immediately began performing CPR. A defibrillator and other first responders assisted in restoring Hamlin’s heartbeat on the turf.
