Sunrise presenter Nat Barr collapsed within seconds of being featured live on television after sending an emotional compliment to his deceased father as part of the Heart Foundation’s Give With Heart Day.
Morning Show presenter Larry Mdur introduced the WA-born bar in a segment of the show dedicated to a 24-hour fundraising campaign aimed at raising awareness of heart disease.
“Now, first of all, your dad was 61 when he died 20 years ago, so it’s obviously still hard to talk to,” he said.

However, Bar broke down when he replied to Emdul and tried to co-sponsor Kylie Gillies.
“I thought I could do this, I’m sorry,” she said.
“You’re looking at the pictures, right?” Asked Gillies, who lost his father just a few weeks ago.
“I’m sorry. I think you’ve just passed through this Kylie. I’m sorry,” Barr replied.
“So many Australians have this, it’s Australia’s biggest murderer.
“50 people die of heart disease a day. I don’t think we’re paying that much attention.
“Our family, like many many Australian families, experienced this 20 years ago.
“It destroys your family, and you never forget it, and you really never get over it.”
Mr. Barr said it was necessary to emphasize not only the personal effects of heart disease, but the effects it had on loved ones.
“We can do something about heart disease prevention, and that’s the message of the Heart Foundation,” she said.
“We can eat as healthy as we can, exercise, and check our blood pressure.
“We can do our best and stay as healthy as possible for our family.”
