A Compassionate Man Catches Ducklings One by One as They Follow Their Mother Off a High Ledge

Man Catches Ducklings

In 2009, a Seattle man came out of his office to find that a mother duck had flown off the ledge of a building and that her little tiny ducklings were preparing to follow in suit. He very quickly placed himself in a strategic spot and caught the ducklings one by one as they jumped. Once all were safe on the ground, the man then lead the family to a local river.

A man who spotted a duck’s nest below his office window rescued the hatchlings by catching them as they jumped from the ledge. Then he helped lead them through a street parade to water.

Writer Aaron Vallely posted an adorable video that kept count of how many ducklings were saved.
