On Saturday, 7-year-old Simon Kruger went missing.

He had been having lunch with his family at Deep Creek Conservation Park, on South Australia's Fleurieu Peninsula, when he wandered off, following a wallaby into the bush.

He spent that night in the wilderness, surviving near-freezing temperatures.

Almost 24 hours after he disappeared ? and after an extensive search by police that involved parachute flares ? Simon was spotted by a rescue helicopter and winched to safety.

Simon then recalled his incredible story of survival.

"Dad, I'm okay ? I slept under a tree and there were kangaroos," he said as they were reunited.

Simon told his parents that he was picking flowers for his mother when a kangaroo approached him.

"A kangaroo came closer to him and ate the flowers from him, and the kangaroo fell asleep next to him," :happy: Simon's father, Etienne Kruger, told 7News. "I think God sent a kangaroo to keep him warm."

"I think it was a miracle, when I smell his jacket, it's kangaroo ? bush and kangaroo," Simon's mother, Linda, added.

Etienne thanked the huge search party who volunteered to help.

Well, that makes a welcome change from the stories of kangaroos being pests and hurting people.

I like kangaroos. Have they been able to domesticate them and make them into household pets?

God sent him a Kangaroo to keep him warm? Would it not have been a nicer gesture if God stopped him running off in the first place? LOL

^ I reckon God was using the Chevy van that day, and it wasn't available to take the boy home. ;)
