New Delhi: A kangaroo ruptured implanted breasts of a woman while she was cycling with her friend in South Australia.
Sharon Heinrich, 45, says she was with her friend and riding a bicycle on Riesling Trail when the kangaroo attack occurred. She suffered ruptured breast implants, three cracked ribs, grazes and a numb leg, while her friend Helen Salter had concussion and whiplash.
Doctors suggested her to undergo a surgery to replace her implanted breasts which worked as 'worked like airbags' when kangaroo lunged at her.
“He… took our cycles out and used myself as a little airbag and then (has) taken Helen out and hopped away into the wilderness,” she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
She would undergo surgery in the city of Adelaide on Thursday but urged other cyclists to keep using the trail despite the encounter.
