Gold Coast firefighter’s heartwarming rescue

With everything going on in the world right now, I thought it would be nice to bring you something a little more light-hearted.

Especially when it involves baby animals and hot firefighters… you’re welcome!

A baby curlew chick has been rescued by a fireman on the Gold Coast overnight.


Queensland Fire and Emergency Services received a triple zero call from security around 6.00pm, with the tip that a baby bird had become stuck down a drain on the corner of University Drive and Science Road in Southport.

Senior Fire Fighter Brenton Mazey from the Southport Fire Station was tasked to the job and came to the rescue.

Considering it was a reasonably easy rescue, it didn’t take long for the little one to be freed with the help of Mr Mazey.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Service spokesperson confirmed to myGC that the baby chick is now safe and doing well.
