CINCINNATI, OH (Newsource) — The University of Cincinnati medical team who cared for Buffalo Bills Safety Damar Hamlin got a very special honor Thursday.

Physicians, nurses, and other support staff were there when Cincinnati Mayor Aftab Pureval handed them the key to the city.

Pureval said the incident couldn’t have happened at a better place and that the health care professionals at U.C. represent the absolute best in their field.

U.C. Medical Center is greater Cincinnati’s only verified level one adult trauma center.

The 24-year-old football safety went into cardiac arrest and collapsed during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals on January 2.

Quick action by team medical personnel as well as top cardiac specialists at the university hospital made all the difference in saving his life.

Hamlin still faces a lengthy recovery, but is reportedly making ‘remarkable progress.’
