SWAMPSCOTT, MASS. (WHDH) - A youth football player from Swampscott who was inspired by the medical crews who rescued the Buffalo Bills’ Damar Hamlin after he went into cardiac arrest during a Monday Night Football game is raising money to buy AEDs and provide CPR training for youth athletics.

Twelve-year-old Cash Christison, a 6th grade student and middle school football player says he’s raised about $2,300 so far and has a goal of raising $10,000. Here is the link to the fundraiser.

“We’ve been raising money to try and get AEDs for places that don’t have them,” he said. “I was watching and I was really worried because I had never seen this kind of injury and I was scared for him.”

Cash says he’s hoping his fundraiser gets the attention of Damar Hamlin and the Bills.
