Lucky koala Sir Chompsalot gets kiss of life22 August 2014 | 06:41 | FOCUS News Agency
Emergency crews were called to the Melbourne suburb of Langwarrin on Thursday night after reports that an injured animal was lying on the road after being hit by a car.
When officials arrived, they found the furry native marsupial had climbed a tree for shelter and firefighters were brought in to bring it down.
"We believed it had died in the tree, just when we were trying to rescue it," Langwarrin Country Fire Authority's Sean Curtin told Fairfax radio. "Then it fell out of the tree and the members caught it in a blanket."
