An off-duty nurse who used a defibrillator three times to save the life of yellow Wiggle Greg Page has been labelled a hero.

Grace Jones, a 23-year-old nurse from Royal North Shore Hospital, was in the audience with her parents watching The Wiggles’ charity concert at Castle Hill RSL on Friday night when Page collapsed on the side of the stage one hour into the show.

Yellow Wiggle Greg Page collapses during bushfire relief concert

  Yellow Wiggle Greg Page collapses during bushfire relief concert Greg Page, one of the founding members of the Wiggles, has collapsed in Sydney while performing at a bushfire relief concert. The Wiggles said a "medical incident" involving Page occurred off-stage as the original band members performed at Castle Hill RSL on Friday night."Medics were called immediately and he was taken to hospital where he is receiving treatment. We will provide more information as it comes to hand," the band said in a statement after the show.

Even as the Gestapo posted his photo in public, he lived a daringly adventurous life , replete with fine restaurants and beautiful women, all the while managing to elude the Nazis until he could escape in the most unlikely of ways—by bicycling to Switzerland.

The story of a human life , from first cry to final breath, told from within the body. Throughout life we undergo a continuous second-by-second transformation, every move we make and every outside stimulus triggers a reaction through the skin, bones, organs, muscles and cells.

After Murray Cook, the original Red Wiggle, announced Page was unwell, Ms Jones offered to assist and was taken on stage where two bystanders were performing CPR.

“He wasn’t breathing so I just went in and did a little CPR and then someone handed me the defibrillator,” she said.

Ms Jones, who said she had been a fan of The Wiggles since childhood, worked on Page for 20 minutes, delivering three shocks before paramedics arrived.

Ms Jones said she was the only person present with medical training "so I just started to do what I do at work".

  Fans send well wishes after Yellow Wiggle Greg Page hospitalised following cardiac arrest at Sydney bushfire relief concert The Wiggles confirmed on social media that Yellow Wiggle Greg Page is on the mend, although he won't be performing tonight at the group's second bushfire relief show in Sydney after collapsing onstage following a cardiac arrest during last night's show. The Wiggles confirmed on social media that Yellow Wiggle Greg Page is on the mend, although he won't be performing tonight at the group's second bushfire relief show in Sydney after collapsing onstage following a cardiac arrest during last night's show.

Here our reporters tell the full story of the Wild Boars. The birthday party that went wrong. It all began with a birthday. His family had prepared a bright yellow SpongeBob SquarePants birthday cake and several colourfully wrapped presents at their home in a rural village in Mae Sai district.

"It really is a story about the goodness in humankind.” The Christian Zabinskis, together with son Ryszard, who was about eight at the start of the project, performed their rescues under constant threat of being discovered by the Germans, who had an army unit stationed at the zoo.

Ms Jones said it was a stressful, high-pressure situation.

"It was really, really scary definitely," she said.

NSW Ambulance paramedic Brian Parsell said he arrived to find Page unconscious, but "miraculously he had cardiac output so his heart was actually beating".

"It’s only through the efforts of the bystanders before we arrived that he’s alive today," he said. "It was actually an extraordinary story of survival."

Mr Parsell urged people to acquire essential life saving skills: "The more people learn CPR and use defibrillators, the more lives we’re actually going to save."

He said Ms Jones should be congratulated for having the courage to step forward and save Page’s life.

"It’s only through her efforts and the other people CPR that Greg’s alive," he said.

"The hero of the story here today is Grace. It’s only for her being that brave and step forward. We’re good paramedics and we do a great job. But we’re only as good as the people that are there performing CPR and using a defibrillator before we arrive."

Mr Parsell said Page suffered a blockage of one of the main blood vessels in his heart, which resulted in a cardiac arrest.

"The chain of survival is minutes to save lives," he said. "Whenever your brain is deficient of oxygenated blood supply for three to five minutes is that absolute critical period when we need to intervene and people can do CPR.

"Had the team that was on stage not commenced CPR, had Grace not actually had the courage to use that defibrillator, then we may have been dealing with a different outcome."

Ms Jones said she felt relieved and happy after a photograph of Page in hospital giving a thumbs up sign was posted on social media.

“I hope his chest isn’t too sore,” she said.
