Baby Koala Refuses To Let Go Of Her Mother During Surgery. This Is Too Damn Cute.

What could have turned into a tragedy has turned into an adorable story of commitment and support, and it's all thanks to a little koala named Phantom that is less than six months old.

Phantom saw his mother, Lizzie get hit by a car in Queensland, Australia, and stayed by her side as she was rushed to the Australia Zoo for treatment. Lizzy's prognosis didn't look good, but what happened next was nothing short of a miracle.

Lizzy was rushed to the hospital in a bad state, and her little joey Phantom refused to leave her side.
