Our Girl Michelle is a real life­saver

MICHELLE Kee­gan used first-aid skills she learned while film­ing Our Girl to save a woman’s life.

The ac­tress rushed to help a diner who had col­lapsed in a restau­rant.

The woman had fallen face­down on her plate as her hor­ri­fied hus­band looked on.

Michelle – Army medic Ge­orgie Lane in the BBC drama – stopped the woman chok­ing.

The 31-year-old for­mer Cor­rie star said: “Be­fore Our Girl I would never have done that. I would have gone into a panic state. I think the train­ing that I had gave me con­fi­dence.”

Michelle said she knew the woman needed su­gar and told the waiter to bring a Coke.

“They came over with a bot­tle and a straw,” she said.

“I knew it was quite dan­ger­ous be­cause it could get trapped in her throat.

“So I threw the straw and put it in a glass.

“She started sip­ping it and came around slowly.”
