Peter Wynn experienced ‘the biggest eye-opener’ in deadly episode
Retired Parramatta second-rower Peter Wynn has shared the startling details from “the biggest eye-opener” he’s experienced.
Wynn recently suffered a shock heart attack, despite leading a healthy and active lifestyle.
He told Ray he’d set out for work, like every other day, when “all of a sudden, this pain … hit me in my chest, down my arm”.
“I slumped under a tree and I couldn’t move.”
Wynn wasn’t able to call passers-by for help, struck so immobile by the attack.
“Mate, I’m telling you it was the biggest eye-opener.”
