A woman will need surgery to replace breast implants that popped when a kangaroo jumped on her and a friend while they were cycling in South Australia’s Clare Valley.
Sharon Heinrich and Helen Salter were cycling through South Australia’s wine region last week when a large kangaroo launched itself on to the pair.
“I thought, ‘he’s cute’, and then he jumped on top of me and used me to launch off and on to my girlfriend,” Heinrich told AAP.
Fourty-five-year-old Heinrich broke three of her ribs after falling “probably 1.5 metres” after the collision, and will require surgery on her damaged breast implants as well.
Heinrich’s friend, 47-year-old Salter, was also treated for whiplash and a concussion.
Heinrich’s husband gave her a stuffed boxing kangaroo as a momento of the incident.
“It’s all you can do now,” she said, “laugh about it and heal”.
