Former rugby league player Mark Geyer broke down in tears on a morning radio show on Tuesday while talking about his daughter’s epilepsy attack.
Geyer began crying during the Triple M radio show he hosts while describing his eldest daughter’s seizure on Sunday morning.
He told his co-hosts Matty Johns and Gus Worland the incident had brought him to his knees and he had been afraid he would lose her.
“Everybody loves their kids to death. I’m a big monster of a man but I couldn’t do anything, not a thing,” Geyer said, adding he’s 6 foot 5 inches (1.96 metres).
“When you’re powerless as a dad, no matter how big and strong you are, that’s the worst feeling in the world.”
