Australian bushfire survivor

In the face of so much tragedy from the Australian bushfires, a small, tender moment is captured on film. A fire fighter discovered a baby koala who calmly sat down, waiting for help. He fed her 2 bottles of spring water to rehydrate her. And she didn't shy away from holding her rescuer's hand. Although it's not apparent from the video, the evening news had reported that Sam, the baby female, was taken to a wildlife rescue and that she'd been paired with Bob, a male koala who also survived the fires.
