Instead of carrying on with his run, the Australian actor went to her aid and was seen taking directions from a 999 operator on his phone. 

Donovan, who played Scott Robinson in Neighbours from 1985 to 1989, put his hand under the neck of the woman, who had hit her head in the fall, and moved her into the recovery position as a crowd gathered.

He stayed with her after paramedics arrived, holding her hand while she was assessed.

When she came round, the woman recognised her helper. The former soap star grinned as she shook his hand before she was taken to hospital by ambulance.
