Watch this kangaroo send a cyclist to the hospital with a kick to the head

In today’s ‘things-from-Australia-that-want-to-kill-you’, a kangaroo launched a surprise attack on a cyclist by leaping out of a bush and drop kicking her head.

The incident, which was caught on video by the cyclist’s companion, shows the woman, identified as Rebecca, riding 18mph on a Queensland road when a roo suddenly appears and delivers a KO punch – or kick, rather.

Rebecca can then be seen falling to the ground, and staying there motionless. Fortunately, her injuries weren’t too serious.

“She was released from hospital that afternoon, with stitches in her knee and her right arm in a sling, for the shoulder-injury from the kangaroo’s impact,” a friend of Rebecca told Courier-Mail.

“Within a day she was having a rueful laugh about it all and worrying about the work days she will miss.”

Only in Australia.
