While on a morning run along a beach in Torquay, Victoria; Sean Purcell went into cardiac arrest and his heart stopped beating. He fell face first into the water on a freezing winter’s morning. A group of strangers came to his aid, administering CPR for 40 minutes before paramedics came and airlifted him to hospital.
A five-day coma followed. Not only was it unlikely that he would survive, his family were also told that if he did, he would suffer permanent brain damage. Somehow, Sean became the luckiest man alive after coming out alive and well.
His story will give you goosebumps. From the collapse all the way through to his search for the locals who saved his life that went viral online.
These days you’ll find Sean heading up a Cotton On Foundation initiative – The Unite Project, a movement created to generate funds to support and assist young Australians facing domestic violence, poverty & youth homelessness. You’ll also find him on the radio, presenting his new podcast ‘Our Favourite Humans’.
Sean shares his story to inspire people to make the most of their lives. His presentation will motivate you to live like every day is the last.
