Now a grandmother, Adelaide's Judy Nimmo remembers being pushed into the path of the Beatles' motorcade through town in summer 1964.
“All of a sudden the crowd behind surged forward and I thought I would be trapped,” Ms Nimmo recalled.
“To make matters worse I was being pummelled in the back of my legs by a child’s pusher."
“The mother of the child was screaming she couldn’t do anything about it because the people behind her were pushing her.”
...As the car passed by inches away, the child’s pusher caught Judy flush behind her knees and propelled her into the front seat of the car and the lap of a startled Paul McCartney, sitting in the passenger seat.
“I don’t know who was more surprised, Paul or me, but he quickly took control,” she added.
“He grabbed my hand to steady me while at the same time he yelled to the car’s driver to stop the car."
...“He looked me in the eyes and said, ‘Are you all right?’
“I can remember even today his lovely grey eyes — It was all very dream like.”
