WATCH: Absolute HERO Saves Sodden Drowning Lil Koala In VIC
A drowning koala has been rescued from Barham River in Apollo Bay by a Great Victorian Bike Ride Volunteer.
Muzammil Patel called wildlife rescue after being alerted that there was a poor little koala struggling to keep afloat in the river. Realising there wasn't much time left, he took things into his own hands.
Watch the video above to see how he pulled of his koala rescue mission.
The fuzzy little friend, who was left looking more than a little sodden, is now safely back in the trees where he belongs.
