Twenty-four-year-old Damar Hamlin of the Buffalo Bills woke up after going into cardiac arrest on the football field Monday evening with so many praying for him. 

Hamlin's team was playing the Cincinnati Bengals on January 2 when just six minutes into the game Hamlin popped up after tackling Tee Higgins and promptly fell flat on his back in cardiac arrest. Emergency crews rushed onto the field administering CPR and using the defibrillator. Hamlin was rushed to the hospital where he went into cardiac arrest for a second time. The following 24 hours had him in critical condition and thousands of people praying for him

The Bills chaplain, Len Vanden Bos tweeted the good news on January 5 after hearing that Hamlin woke up. 

Vanden Bos continued tweeting, sharing that Hamlin, who wears the number three on his jersey, woke on the third day. 

The NFL team has been keeping people updated on Hamlin's physical progress and shared this morning that he is on the mend. 

People sprang to comment on the good news of Hamlin's recovery, sharing they thought it was 'nothing short of a miracle,' and commenting on the amazing teams of doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Hamlin's family isn't the only ones that have been at the hospital since the incident. Higgens, the Bengals player that was tackled has also been at the hospital in support. 

"Everything's okay," says Higgens in an interview. "He's doing good so I'm in a good place right now."

When asked how the conversation went with Nina, Hamlin's mom, Higgens says, "She was telling me that she's thinking of me and praying for me."

The NFL has announced that they have cancelled the game between the Bills and Bengals that was initially just postponed after the tackle. 

After Hamlin was signed on as a player in the NFL, he said, "As I embark on my journey to the NFL, I will never forget where I come from and I am committed to using my platform to positively impact the community that raised me."
