Using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, rescuers saved the little marsupial.
The koala was hit by a vehicle two nights ago and sought refuge in a tree. Wildlife Victoria and the CFA checked on him Thursday night and realized he wasn;t in good shape.
When he didn't respond, they began CPR.
Dazed and shaken, the koala finally came around and now goes by Sean - after the fire brigade captain.
