Callan Fox, a 29-year-old man in healthy condition, collapsed at the corner of Anzac Parade and Parkes Way in January and required emergency medical attention from a paramedic.
"If that paramedic – who was still a student – didn't have a defibrillator with him then I wouldn't be here today," he said.
