Robot rescues bird from block
From: AAP

A BOMB squad robot has made a mercy dash to rescue a pet bird trapped in the Sydney unit block teetering on the edge of collapse.
About 50 residents were evacuated early on Wednesday when a section of the Lane Cove Tunnel project caved-in, leaving the building cracking apart and hanging over a gaping abyss.
In the emergency rush, bird-lover Karen Bruce forgot to take her three-month-old cockatiel Tweety, leaving the bird trapped as the sole living creature on the site.
It was left to the un-named robot today to rescue the caged bird from Ms Bruce's unit that is above the section that suffered the most damage.
As the robot emerged with Tweety's cage an emotional Ms Bruce held it up triumphantly and was looking forward to taking the bird out for a cuddle.
"Tweety is a hand-reared cockatiel who likes daily contact," she said.
