Woman Saves Burned and Screaming Koala Using the Shirt off Her Back

By

Australia is experiencing widespread wildfires, with temperatures reaching more than 40C (104F) in many areas. So far, at least four people are believed to have died, and while the human cost is devastating, Australia's wildlife seems to be suffering far worse.  

So far, wildfires have burned through more than 2.5 million acres of Australia’s east coast, threatening vulnerable species like the koala. But one badly burned koala was rescued by a woman named Toni Doherty, who rushed to the animal's aid when she spotted it trying to cross a road in New South Wales.
