An Adelaide woman has shared video online of a kangaroo that jumped her back fence and hopped straight into her swimming pool.

Cheyne called out the driver of the other vehicle, telling him there was a trapped kangaroo in his car.

Remarkably, the driver told Cheyne he knew he had hit a kangaroo the night before but believed it was dead.
