Woman saves koala from bushfires

LONG FLAT, Australia (CNN) - A cute little koala was rushed to the hospital after being rescued from a brush fire in Australia.

A viral video shows the koala bear crossing the road and getting stranded near the flames.

But then, a woman rushed in, using her own shirt to wrap up the koala and move it out of harm's way.

She doused the koala with water as it squealed in pain from its burns.

The animal was later taken to a nearby hospital that specializes in treating koalas.

The koala has been treated for his burns and is still listed in very serious condition.
