The American side of Niagara Falls lit up blue on Tuesday night in support of Demar Hamlin and the Buffalo Bills.
The Falls, located on the US–Canada border, was illuminated from 9:00 p.m. By 9:15 p.m. ET, according to a post on Twitter.
It is one of several sites nationwide that adopted the Bill’s colors after Hamlin’s Monday night collapse.
The Bills’ home city of Buffalo in upstate New York, just 20 miles south of Niagara Falls, painted its city hall blue on Tuesday.
And in Cincinnati – where Hamlin collapsed in the middle of a game against the Bengals – several buildings including banks and the football stadium were turned blue.
Damar Hamlin is always looking out for others, friend says
Damar Hamlin’s friend and marketing representative Jordon Rooney described the 24-year-old player as “someone who always looks out for others.”
“He’s someone who is selfless. He’s charismatic. He’s super caring. He’s always looking out for others,” Rooney told CNN. “It doesn’t matter how he’s feeling, what went on that day, he’s giving himself to others to make sure other people in the room feel welcome, feel appreciated, feel inspired.”
