Its also possible it was Commotio Cordis. Just a hard hit at the wrong beat of the rhythm.

This seems a likely scenario - and that wrong beat (or resting period) doesn't last long, so undoubtedly rare.

One football player has died on the field in the entire history of the NFL. And that was a heart attack, not from a hit.

Damar Hamlin isn't the first pro athlete to have cardiac arrest on the field — here are 5 other stars who collapsed while the clock was running

I've heard that explanation, but how many hits to the chest are there in the NFL every year. If getting hit at the wrong moment was going to send otherwise healthy players into cardiac arrest, you'd think it wouldn't be quite this rare.
