Heroic Blake Fielder-Civil Describes Saving Amy Winehouse During Drug Overdose

by at .

Amy Winehouse's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, is apparently still around.

He is also apparently doing what he can to cash in on his final moments of fame by describing how he feared his wife was dying in his arms during a bender.

Fielder-Civil, who was granted a divorce from her on grounds of her adultery on July 16, told The Sun how Amy went into a seizure and stopped breathing.

He recalled: "She started having a fit on the bed. She slid down on to the floor before I could stop her. She started quivering and it suddenly grew into like a full-blown epileptic fit. I was panicking. I didn't know know how to help her."

He later notes, "I was out of it on drugs as well."

The heroic Blake Fielder-Civil described how he put the songstress into the recovery position, pulling her tongue out of her mouth to stop her biting it.

He added: "I knelt over her as she kept on fitting. But then suddenly she just passed out and stopped breathing. It was the most frightening thing I had ever seen. I felt sure I was watching her die right in front of me."

"I didn't know how to save her. I held her to me. I thought she was dying in my arms. But I managed to open her mouth and breathe air down her throat."

"At first nothing happened. So I did it again. I was feeling for a pulse because I thought her heart might have stopped. Then she spluttered - and I saw her chest rise. I was sobbing and panicking but I just felt this huge relief that she was alive."

Blake Fielder-Civil continued describing how Amy Winehouse, slipping in and out of consciousness, was unable to recognize him and called out for more drugs, before a friend called a taxi to take her to hospital, where she was placed on IVs.

Reflecting on Winehouse's troubled life, her ex-husband said:

"It's just a shame because she's very funny, very clever and she's very loving. I can think of all these good points about her. But she just put everything going for her - all that talent and personality - and hid them behind drink and drugs."
