Australia fires: Injured koala reunited with bushfire rescuer

A woman who used the shirt off her back to rescue a seriously injured koala in a New South Wales bushfire has been praised for saving his life.

Toni Doherty pulled the crying koala from a burning tree near the town of Long Flat, poured water on his burnt paws and wrapped him in a duvet before taking him to a koala hospital.
