The search is on for several people who came to the aid of Ballarat jogger Dave Sharp (pictured) who was revived seven minutes after collapsing near a Sovereign Hill bus stop.

Ambulance Victoria has managed to bring together CDC bus driver Steve Bathurst, Sovereign Hill employee Louise Johnson, security guard Peter Dwyer, passenger Braidyn Psaila and Peter Gamble - who have all been awarded Community Hero medals.

However there are still a couple of unknown heroes from that night - 18 June 2018 - that Ambulance Victoria is keen to contact. They would have been on the Buninyong-to-Ballarat bus just before 7pm or passing by in the Bradshaw Street area.

We caught up with bus driver Steve, who was the first to see a strange object on the ground that night...

Louise Johnson says many of the people involved in this story had not seen each other since that fateful night - and they were finally able to piece together what  happened.

Dave is getting treatment for a heart condition and is backing jogging the streets of Ballarat.
