The Wiggles were joined by the team of firefighters who helped rescue the young girl.

During the rescue, the firefighters sang Wiggles songs to keep little Nayvah calm during the nearly hour-long rescue operation.

Red Wiggle Simon Pryce said it was important for the band to come down and do a special performance.

“Nayvah is a very brave girl,” he said.

Nayvah’s mother Samantha said the media attention the story received was somewhat overwhelming.

“It’s pretty crazy, I didn’t think something so small would become so big,” she said.

“She’s a Wiggles fanatic, she absolutely loves them.

“Her life revolves around the Wiggles.”

For Samantha and older brother Leo, there was extra reason to appreciate the moment.

“The children lost their father in a car accident in Kersbrook in September,” she said.

“So we always wanted to take her to a concert, so it was really good to be able to take her to a concert.

“I can’t wait until she’s 18 and 21 and I can show her that she got to know The Wiggles.”
