The heartwarming video shows the beautiful relationship between a mother Koala and her baby.

The koala mother and her baby were reportedly escaping from Hahndorf in Adelaide, Australia, which had recently been struck by a storm.

The baby koala is heard squeaking distress.

The mother who had climbed up a tree sees her baby in distress and climbs down for a closer look.

What happens next is remarkable.
