A koala bear just inches from safety took a big fall — and it was caught on video.

According to CBS, the camera was rolling as kids were on a field trip in Australia.

They discovered the koala trapped in a mine shaft, so they lowered a tree trunk to let him climb to safety.

As he neared the top, he plunged back down, but then managed to make it out on the second attempt.
