Maroons utility Moses Mbye goes into anaphylactic shock in hotel

Maroons star Moses Mbye has had a horrifying brush with death after a hotel-room collapse that has rocked the Queensland team ahead of Origin II tomorrow night.

The Sunday Mail can reveal Queensland team doctor Matt Hislop has saved Mbye’s life after the utility went into anaphylactic shock on Friday morning in a terrifying ordeal that has stunned the close-knit Maroons team.

Without the quick thinking of one of Australia’s leading sports medicos, Mbye has been told he would be dead.

The near-fatality represents one of the most distressing incidents in State of Origin’s 39-year history.

Anaphylaxis is a potentially life-threatening, severe allergic reaction, usually to foods or insects, that can cause death within 15 minutes.

Incredibly, Mbye has told Queensland coach Kevin Walters he will play in Origin II – just 48 hours after fearing he would die.

Queensland hierarchy have confirmed to The Sunday Mail that they have filed a Critical Incident Report with senior management at their team hotel.
Mbye’s mysterious collapse occurred around 10.30am on Friday morning during Queensland’s day off.

Hislop found Mbye slumped on the floor unconscious outside his hotel-room door after the 25-year-old father-of-three made an emergency call to him, only to pass out within seconds.

Carrying a first-aid kit, Hislop immediately used an EpiPen, an anti-allergy injection device containing a man-made version of adrenaline to revive the stricken Mbye.

The Queensland rookie understands he had only a few minutes left to live after his airways closed over when Hislop arrived on the scene to treat him.

Hislop was staying on the same floor as Mbye and raced to his aid, giving him an injection of epinephrine to his upper leg to save his life.

Queensland players have been made aware of Mbye’s collapse, while the Wests Tigers skipper has relayed the news to his wife.

Mbye has told Queensland’s medical team he has no allergies and has never before suffered anaphylactic shock from any allergy-related incidents.

The Noosa Pirates junior will undergo tests after Origin II when he returns home to Sydney as Queensland doctors attempt to explain his sudden collapse.

Despite feeling weak for most of Friday, Mbye trained with his Queensland teammates at Saturday’s captain’s run and is adamant he will play his second Origin game before a sellout crowd of 60,000 at Perth’s Optus Stadium.

Speaking at his captain’s run press conference, Queensland coach Kevin Walters backed Mbye to play a key interchange role as the Maroons’ super-sub after his seven-minute debut in Origin I.

“We have a lot of confidence in what Moses can bring,” he said.

“Moses had just a little window of opportunity in Game One, we know he is a terrific player at club level, he showed that he could handle the step up in class albeit for short period of time.

“But he will be ready to go when we need him.”

Bloody hell that is some near miss. Sounds like he is OK if he has trained since. It’s a fine line we tread sometimes. All the best Moses!

Crikey… Glad he’s ok.

Breaking news ehh.
Glad he’s OK.

He should be fine for 8 mins in game 2.

He will need a lot of tests to see what caused it and he was lucky to have immediate assistance available.Pleased he is ok but it will be anxious time for him and his family until they can identify the problem

Christ that’s heavy… Glad he’s OK. Would have been a tragic outcome of the quack wasn’t around.

I’d guess the reason he was given an epipen so quickly was because they knew in advance

Not so sure, all first aid kits in schools carry an epipen, and staff are instructed to use it even if the child has no declared allergies. Which I think was the case with MBye

That’s correct my wife is a School teacher and their First Aid kit has an Epipen.

Scary stuff. Glad he is OK
