Motorists Rescued Daring Koala Stranded In Middle Of Road

These two motorists pulled together to save the life of a koala stranded in the middle of a busy road – but the grumpy marsupial didn’t seem too impressed by their heroism.

Driving down the motorway in Sydney Australia, Vanja Henderson, 33, was left startled when the car in front of her suddenly veered in the road.

Noticing a petrified koala stranded between four lanes of traffic, the legal assistant immediately pulled over in the fast-lane of the road and the two strangers ran towards it.

Dodging traffic whizzing by at 60mph, the driver of another car that had stopped, Carlton Elias, scooped the koala up into his arms – but the bear began flailing its arms in resistance, before sinking its claws into his neck.
