Woman saves scorched koala in Australian bushfire

A woman rescued a badly burnt and wailing koala from an Australian bushfire on Tuesday (November 19).

The marsupial was spotted crossing a road amongst the flames near Long Flat in New South Wales (NSW).

A local woman, who told Australia's Nine News her name was Toni, rushed to the koala's aid, wrapping the animal in her shirt and a blanket and pouring water over it.

She said she would transport the injured koala to the nearby Port Macquarie Koala Hospital.

Koalas are now ‘functionally’ extinct with tiny remaining wild population ‘unable to support the next generation’:
