Apparently, Australians take their koalas very seriously. And who can blame them? The eucalyptus-chomping marsupials are so darn cute. When Melbourne firefighters were alerted to an injured koala stuck in a tree, they didn’t waste a moment coming to its aid.
Nicknamed “Sir Chompsalot” by his rescuers, the fluffy herbivore was able to make a full recovery after receiving CPR and mouth-to-mouth from a Wildlife Victoria employee who joined in on the firefighters’ life saving mission.
That’s right: koala mouth-to-mouth.
Check out this video of the full harrowing experience:
Sir Chompsalot was then taken to a veterinary facility where he continues his recovery. This woman definitely deserves an award! And maybe a raise.
