Our Girl Michelle is a real lifesaver
SHE RESCUES DINER
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.”
