“The roo’s life was important to us.”
As two Australian teens rode their bikes near Sydney, Australia, they saw something strange sticking out of the mud: a head and two pointed ears to be exact.
Both age 19, Jack Donelly and Nick Heath came in for a closer look and what they saw broke their hearts.
The pair knew they needed to help, so rushed home to get supplies, tied rope around Nick’s waist, and waded into the mud, and Jack kept a grip on the rope from dry land.
The kangaroo relaxed as soon as it was free from the mud.
“The roo’s life was important to us so we went out on an arm and leg,” Nick Heath told TODAY.
“We think he went searching for water there, and it was really muddy so he got himself really stuck.”
