Firefighters rescue wallaby caught in the fast-flowing river

Crews were conducting reconnaissance work around Moama today when they came across a wallaby, caught in the fast-flowing river 🌊 They steered their boat 🚤 towards the wallaby and lifted it onto the vessel before releasing it on nearby land. A short time later, locals preparing sandbags in the same township spotted a kangaroo hopping around in floodwaters 🦘 They alerted our crew who attended and carefully guided the animal back to land, where it was able to catch its breath.
