Greg Page was best known as the original Yellow Wiggle, however, he is now known as The Wiggle who had a cardiac arrest on stage and survived!
In January 2020, Greg suffered a sudden cardiac arrest during a performance by the Original Wiggles, for a charity fundraiser for bushfire relief during the Australian summer. At the end of the concert, Greg collapsed at the side of the stage, and CPR was performed on him for 20 minutes by 4 bystanders. A defibrillator was brought to the scene, and Greg was shocked 3 times before his heart restarted.
Ever since his life was saved because of CPR and an AED (Automated External Defibrillator), Greg has been on a mission to educate others about the importance of knowing CPR, and making AEDs more available in public places and in homes through his incredible initiative calledHeart of the Nation‚Äö√Ñ√π which is abadge of honour‚Äö√Ñ√π that businesses everywhere can place on their entry doors, letting the community know that they have an AED inside if it is ever needed to save a life like Gregs was.
