    Damar Hamlin honored at Yankee Stadium

    BRONX, New York (WABC) — Damar Hamlin was honored Monday at Yankee Stadium.

    The Yankees invited Hamlin to help kickoff the 14th edition of Hope Week. Hope Week is an opportunity for the team to celebrate people, families and organizations worthy of recognition and support.

    Hamlin, a safety for the Buffalo Bills, participated in CPR training at the stadium and shared his inspirational story.

    Back in January, Hamlin’s heart stopped while he made a tackle during an NFL game.

    First responders acted fast and resuscitated Hamlin by performing CPR.

    Sarah Taffet, a former Fordham softball player whose life was saved by CPR administered during a game in 2021, lead the training session along with the American Heart Association.

    Both Hamlin and Taffet threw out the first pitch Monday ahead of the Yankees game against the Orioles.
