Peyton Manning didn't visit the hospital, but he did speak to some victims over the phone:
It was very thoughtful; it was his idea," Linda Kanamine, spokeswoman for HealthOne, the parent company of the hospital, told the Los Angeles Times.
Kanamine said HealthOne has a close working relationship with the Denver Broncos, and Manning and other players wanted to be of assistance. "They live here, they work here, they have friends here," she said. Like everyone else in Colorado, they wanted to know how they could help, she said.
