Early defibrillation and quick thinking from Australian nurse, saved Yellow Wiggle, Greg Page's life
The nurse who shocked Yellow Wiggle Greg Page back to life after he collapsed at the end of a Sydney bushfire relief concert has said "I don't really think of myself as a hero".
Grace Jones, a nurse at Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital, was a fan of the Wiggles back when she was a child and jumped at the chance to see the originals reunite for a concert to raise funds for the ongoing bushfire crisis at Castle Hill RSL, in the city's north west.
But the Friday night concert didn't end the way Ms Jones thought it would when Page, 48, walked off stage and collapsed.
He had been feeling unwell throughout the concert but decided to push through, performing the band's second last song before walking off. It was later revealed he had suffered a heart blockage.
"I've been trained to do that and I kind of flicked a switch. I went in and I just used all the knowledge that helped him, and saved him," she told reporters yesterday.
Ms Jones then used a defibrillator three times to shock Page, miraculously getting his heart pumping again.
