In Australia, a koala named Lisi and her baby Phantom were hit by a car on the highway. The mother sustained head and lung injuries, while the baby remained unharmed. The animal urgently needed surgery and they were both taken to a veterinary medical center.
The baby was too young to stay without his mother for long, so the doctors decided not to wean the baby and leave him by his mother’s side for the duration of the operation. The baby hugged his mother all the time and patiently waited for the doctors to do their job. The photo spread across the Internet with great speed – all over the world, readers felt sorry for the baby and wished his mother a speedy recovery.
