A small, fragile kangaroo floundered in the mud, which was on the verge of death, because it landed in the dry bed of the Nepean River in Sydney. He got there when he was looking for water to quench his thirst.
But fortunately, it was at that very time that two teenagers were passing by the dried-up riverbed. One of them noticed some movement in the mud.
The friends decided to stop and come closer to see what was going on and if anyone needed help. Then they saw a kangaroo, who had spent almost all his strength in unsuccessful attempts to get out.
The life of a kangaroo depended on two teenagers! But the guys have already figured out how to help the baby.
One of them, named Jack, took a rope, tied it around the waist of his comrade, named Nick. Then he crawled to the kangaroo to pull him out. Soon he managed to grab it with both hands, and his friend pulled them out.
The rescued kangaroo felt unwell. How long he stayed in the river bed is not exactly known, but the baby was exhausted, hungry and dehydrated.
The guys who pulled the animal out of the trap contacted the rescuers and they came to pick up the kangaroo. The baby was examined by a doctor, and then he was already washed from dirt.
A few days later, he was on the mend, but the rescuers were worried that he might develop myopathy (a disease that affects the muscles). The kangaroo will be watched for some time – if he feels good, he will be released into the wild.
Thanks to the two brave guys who saved the baby! If it was interesting, please share it with your friends and family !
