Former NFL Running back Peyton Hillis is being hospitalized after saving his children from drowning in a swimming incident. The Hillis children reportedly did not need any medical attention. The latest reports claim that Hillis is improving but he remains in intensive care for his lungs and kidneys.
According to Alyssa Orange, the family was in Pensacola, Florida when the accident occurred. The most recent news from Peyton Hillis’ uncle is that he is doing better than when he originally arrived at the hospital. However, he still reportedly remains unconscious.
Thoughts, prayers, and condolences have been reigning in on social media since the news first broke. NFL players, politicians, and many folks have been rightfully labeling Hillis as a hero and of course hoping for a quick recovery.
