Report: Minder Saved OZZY's Life

December 11, 2003

Ozzy Osbourne was brought back to life by a security guard following his quad bike accident, his wife Sharon revealed last night, according to The Sun.

Ozzy, 55, had stopped breathing for a minute and a half before his minder revived him.

Sharon, 51, said: "He has got such horrendous injuries to his body. His whole body is traumatized. But thank God the security guard was there to revive him.

"He resuscitated him and got him breathing and his pulse going again. We are so, so grateful to him."

The former BLACK SABBATH frontman suffered a cracked vertebra in his neck and eight broken ribs when the quad bike toppled on top of him at his Buckinghamshire mansion on Monday.

He remains in intensive care at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough, Berks, where he is heavily sedated and on a ventilator.

Doctors will only be able to assess any permanent damage after he is off the ventilator.

Ozzy yesterday received a bat-shaped cake from The Sun — in honor of the time when he famously bit the head off a live bat.
