Woman saves koala from brushfires

International

(CNN) — This little fella was rushed to the hospital after being rescued from a brush-fire in Australia.

A viral video shows the koala bear crossing the road and getting stranded near the flames.

A woman then rushed in, using her own shirt to wrap up the koala and move it out of harm’s way.

She doused the koala with water as it squealed in pain from its burns.

The animal was later taken to a nearby hospital that specializes in treating koalas.

The koala has been treated for his burns and is still in “very serious condition.”
