Lowrie made up her mind to offer help to the thirsty and helpless Koala when she landed her eyes on it. “The first thing which came up in my mind was that the little creature was dying of thirst,” Lowrie said in an interview with the ABC news.
The video footage started by the woman walking towards the helpless creature. The Koala first hesitated as Lowrie approaches but later gathered courage and drunk from the plastic bottle.
