Greg Page, the original Yellow Wiggle was performing a reunion show of The Wiggles at Sydney’s Castle Hill RSL in January 2020 when he collapsed on the side of the stage.
Greg suffered a cardiac arrest that night. Lucky for him a nurse was in the audience and knew exactly what to do. Two bystanders began performing CPR and another joined in and used an AED that was located at the RSL. The AED delivered a lifesaving shock to his heart giving Greg a bigger chance for survival. The bystanders in the audience who helped Greg that night, saved his life.
Greg’s survival story brings home the importance of public awareness and training in CPR and AED. Six months on, Greg is alive, walking the streets of Sydney with his wife, writing new songs and passionately sharing his cardiac arrest story with the public.
Greg will be joining us for Restart a Heart Day as part of our survivor story team.
