HEALESVILLE, AUSTRALIA (NBC/APTN) - A kangaroo in Australia’s Victoria state hopped into something it couldn’t get out of: a swimming pool.

Aerial video showed the kangaroo struggling to get out of the pool.

Rescuers sedated it, helped it to the shallow end of the pool, and lifted it out.

The kangaroo was treated for hypothermia at a local zoo.

Local media said the kangaroo was discovered thanks to the owner of the pool’s barking dog.

“In his case, one of the big concerns is he was very cold by the time I pulled him out, so he’s actually suffering from hypothermia,” said Manfred Zabinskas, with Wildlife Victoria.
