TORQUAY, Australia, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- A sleeping couple received a uniquely Australian rude awakening when a kangaroo crashed through their window and jumped on their bed.
Bill and Norma McConnell said they were sleeping Sunday morning at their home in Torquay, Victoria, when they were awakened by a loud crash.
"There was this almighty crash and bang -- it was so loud and scary and noisy," Bill McConnell told Ten Eyewitness News. "This object burst though our bedroom window- we didn't know what it was, to us it was just an object."
Norma McConnell told 9 News she "heard the incredible crash and saw this big, brown mound in front of me."
The couple said the kangaroo jumped on their bed before hopping quickly down a hallway.
The kangaroo eventually left the house through the open back door, but not before Bill McConnell snapped a photo to prove their marsupial encounter wasn't just a tall tale.
"It's not a very good photograph, but it does show it was in fact a kangaroo and we aren't making this story up," he said.
