So, Nick tied a rope around his waist , so he could get closer to the kangaroo. When he succeeded, he placed a rope around his body as well.

After removing the animal , they realized that it was extremely scared and nervous. Then, they deposited it for a moment on a firm surface. The boys think the kangaroo got stuck there while looking for water to drink . After removing it, they immediately contacted the experts at WIRES Australian WildLife Rescue , due to the poor condition it was in. Only professionals knew how to clean the thick layer of mud that covered his body and provide him with the medical attention he needed.
Once sedated, the experts were able to bathe him with warm water and get rid of all the mud. They then increased his body temperature and gave him the fluids he needed to survive. Nick was uninjured after the rescue and both he and Jack became heroes after saving the kangaroo.
