A kangaroo was saved from cold waters by two individuals who were nearby in Australia. David Boyd, who was on the phone with the government in Canberra about the terrified animal at the time, captured the touching rescue.
The two gentlemen approach the shy, trembling kangaroo slowly in the video. According to Metro UK, the males approached with arms extending from two directions.
They invited the terrified kangaroo to approach them, but the kangaroo frightenedly turned away and stayed still inside the frozen Lake Burley Griffin.
The kangaroo pushed the first guy away and kicked the water away as soon as he arrived. After that, a second man carefully came to assist him in being lifted to a secure spot on the boardwalk.
A third man jumped in to assist soothe the marsupial as several passers-by looked on in awe.
The kangaroo made a wonderful sign of gratitude for the assistance he received by extending his hand to one of his rescuers as a token of gratitude for all his efforts.
David believes this was his way of saying thank you for rescuing him from the icy water.
The guy commented on his social media accounts about the emotional experience, and along with the video’s publishing on his Facebook page, he said:
“This was my morning alone in Canberra, kudos to these guys, the guy in the Soldier On Top is a Navy Clearance Diver, good news, the kangaroo is alright,” said the author.
