Koala saved from bushfire

New video shows a woman saving a koala from a bushfire in New South Wales, Australia. The koala, dubbed "Lewis" has been treated for his burns and is still in "very serious condition".

Hundreds of koalas are feared dead as bushfires spread across Australia's east coast, ravaging their main habitat. But some people are doing what they can to save the vulnerable marsupials.

A local woman rushed to the koala's aid, wrapping the animal in her shirt and a blanket and pouring water over it. She took  the injured animal to the nearby Port Macquarie koala hospital.

The country's koala populations have been a major victim of the bushfires, with more than 350 of the animals feared killed.
