This is so hard to watch.

A woman rescued a baby koala from a brush fire in Australia and you can see how much distress the animal was under when rescued.

The woman took her shirt off to care for the animal and even poured water over the animal's body in an attempt to cool it off.

The animal was ultimately handed over to firefighters on the scene and I hope that it was given the medical attention it needed.

What a brave thing this woman did. Check out the rescue here.
