Finding Jeremy: finding comfort amid the aftershocks

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 18 February 2019

Nearly eight years ago, on the day when the second Christchurch earthquake struck, Andy and Amber Cleverley were trapped at the top of the Grand Chancellor Hotel with an American man they only knew as Jeremy.

The trio talked about how their lives would change if they managed to escape and survive. Hours later, they were rescued, only to be separated in the chaos that followed.

Seven years later, Andy and Amber's thoughts turn back to the man they bonded with at the top of that crumbling building. What has become of Jeremy? Has he gone through any of the same struggles they have?

Finding Jeremy is a documentary airing on the Prime Channel tomorrow night at 8.35pm - Amber Cleverley joins us to talk about the experience.
