Published Jan 17, 2020Greg Page of beloved Australian children's group the Wiggles nearly died onstage after going into cardiac arrest while performing a reunion concert today.
The concert was a bushfire benefit show in Sydney, and Page — who played the yellow Wiggle — suffered a heart attack about an hour and a half into the show. This had marked the first Wiggles concert since 2016.
Following the main portion of the show, Page collapsed as he exited the stage. As a result, the encore was cancelled as Page was rushed to hospital.

The Wiggles confirmed the news via their social media, tweeting the following:
Page had retired from the Wiggles following his diagnosis with orthostatic intolerance, a disorder of the autonomic nervous system. Thursday (January 16) marked his 48th birthday.
