Teen Lifeguard Saves a Drowning Kangaroo at an Australian BeachThis Australian teen's first rescue as a lifeguard was a highly unusual one—a kangaroo struggling to paddle back to shore.Kangaroos are generally great swimmers, but when 17-year-old Lillian Bee Young spotted one at Iluka Beach in NSW, Australia, the kangaroo had been caught in rough surf. According to Young, she had been sitting on a tractor with her colleague when the kangaroo jumped off the rocks and into the water. It was trying to avoid nearby fishermen.Young acted quickly. With her rescue board, she braved the strong wind and choppy waters to rescue the kangaroo. She paddled behind the kangaroo and guided it to safety. Back at the shore, a cheering crowd celebrated her valor.#kangaroo #lifeguard #beach #Australia
