Bills' safety Damar Hamlin honors the heroes in Cincinnati who helped save his life

A MARTÍNEZ, HOST:

Good morning, I'm A Martínez.

Buffalo Bill's safety Damar Hamlin is honoring the heroes in Cincinnati who helped save his life. Hamlin will be using his Chasing M's Foundation to award $1,000 scholarships in honor of 10 medical professionals who tended to him when he suffered cardiac arrest on the field earlier this year. In a tweet, Hamlin says he surprised his heroes by naming a scholarship for each of them. The money will go to underserved high schoolers in the Cincinnati area.
