Koalas are cute, gentle marsupials. They live mostly in trees and only go down to the ground if necessary.

I’m  no expert when it comes to their social behavior, but what this sweet and adorable 6-month-old joey named Phantom did for his mom, Lizzy will truly melt your heart.

Lizzy and Phantom were hit by a car along the Warrego Highway in Coominya, Australia. Although Phantom was unharmed, his mom sustained head injuries and a collapsed lung. The koala mom had to undergo surgery at the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital.

What’s really striking was that Phantom stayed with her the entire time during surgery.
