Woman Attacked by Kangaroo While Cycling Goes Under the Operating Knife for Surprising Reason
In a surprising twist of fate, a woman who was attacked by a male kangaroo while biking the Riesling Trail in South Australia’s Clare Valley has attributed an unanticipated guardian angel with saving her life: her breast implants.
Sharon Heinrich, 45, a care worker from Clare, was on a typical bike ride with her friend and co-worker Helen Salter, 47, when the companions were attacked by a 141 pound kangaroo. The buck vaulted onto the two friends from a five foot ledge, launching itself at Heinrich’s bicycle, then leaping on to Salter with its powerful hind legs.

“I saw him and thought ‘oh isn’t he cute’ – then he was on top of me,” Heinrich said. “I’m 5’4″ and he was taller than me, and so heavy. Once he landed on me, he used me to launch off again, which caused more damage.”
Without phones to call for help, Salter traveled to the nearby town of Penwortham, where a local business was able to call for an ambulance. Heinrich, meanwhile, remained on the trail, in the care of several tourists who happened to be in the area. Though the pair made a lucky escape, they were not left completely unscathed: Salter was left concussed, while Heinrich sustained three fractured ribs, multiple abrasions and lacerations, and an internal breast implant rupture. She was brought to a hospital in Adelaide for emergency surgery and has since recovered fantastically.
