Two brave Australians performed an incredible act of kindness. They worked together to save the life of a vulnerable kangaroo that was about to be put to sleep. The confused kangaroo found himself in a highly precarious situation when he was left behind in a lake in the nation’s capital. The lake was quite cold. Fortunately, two courageous individuals rescued him out of the water in a record time, allowing them to save his life. According to reports from the media, one of the people who helped save the animal is even given a handshake as a thank you gesture for their efforts. The incident was recorded on video, and soon after it was released, the clip garnered a lot of interest online.
An eyewitness to the rescue, David Boyd, was the first person to post the video on Facebook. Since then, it has gained widespread attention. After becoming stranded in the frigid waters of Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra, Australia, a weary kangaroo can be seen in the video being cautiously approached by two strangers. The kangaroo does not appear to be able to move at this point. The unhappy animal was eventually rescued and taken to shore, where he and the people who helped him were found to be in good health. It is common knowledge that kangaroos may be somewhat dangerous when close to people (even though the intentions are peaceful).
Nic Crowther, one of the two people who rescued the man, told ABC Australia that what they did was “just what any warm-blooded person would do.” This statement was made after everything had been said and done. People have helped animals or others in need in the past, and we’ve seen that happen many times throughout these years.
The kangaroo was saved by two brave guys who brought him to a place of safety. Despite this, a third man on the boardwalk reached out. He attempted to console the unfortunate kangaroo by placing his hands on the animal’s back and patting it. After around thirty minutes of trying their best, the three men were unsuccessful in calming down the overworked beast. However, when he begins to regain his composure, the marsupial thinks of the most endearing way to convey his appreciation to one of the brave individuals who helped him. He offers to shake my hand and makes the gesture!
The incredible rescue caused a stir on many social media platforms. Many people would like to thank the men who did the service without expecting anything. On the video, many people left comments, one of which said, “Doesn’t get any more Aussie than being swooped by a Magpie. Excellent work, gentlemen.” Another person commented that the men exhibited an impressive amount of composure. What an excellent example of a gentleman!
