Renowned Australian journalist and Echo contributor Mungo MacCallum is recovering after collapsing at Ocean Shores shopping centre yesterday.
Mungo’s partner Jenny Garrett issued a short statement yesterday afternoon thanking those who had helped out at the scene.
‘Mungo and Jenny thank everybody at Ocean Shores Shopping Centre, Rosalind and the other RN nurse, Gaga Cafe and Ocean Shores Medical Centre for taking care until the ambos came,’ she wrote.
‘We are both recovering very nicely thank you. We hope not make a habit of it.’
Jenny said Mungo was taken to Mullumbimby Hospital, where he experienced their ‘usual efficient service’.
In 2014 Twitter lit up with tributes to Mungo after he was erroneously reported to have passed away. He subsequently posed for the above photo by The Echo‘s Eve Jeffery.
