Following the brave efforts from Australian police officers, one kangaroo was given a second chance at life after almost drowning in the sea.
Onlookers caught the moment Sergeants Christopher Russo and Kirby Tonkin went into the water and pulled out the poor roo – they then proceeded to give it CPR to revive him.
The marsupial had been spotted hopping into the water and having a small swim before popping back onto the beach.
The kangaroo eventually got spooked and hopped back into the water, this time its swim would be less successful than before as it eventually got caught in the surf and dragged under by the waves. Rosebud Police officers then sprang into action to save the unlikely victim.
Without a moment’s hesitation, the two jumped in after the drowning roo, swimming out to meet him. They were eventually able to get hold of him and drag him back to shore.
The video shows the pair hauling the creature from the water and wrapping him in blankets – they eventually had to get him to a grassy area where they could perform chest compressions that successfully revived him.
