Police escort ducklings to safety

We've all seen a pelican crossing in the street, but how often do you see a duck crossing?

These little ducklings got themselves in a flap when their mum led them straight into a busy road in America.

She clearly forgot to "stop, look, listen" when she waddled across the street with her offspring, causing a hazard for drivers.

Luckily two police officers were on hand to make sure they all made it to safety.
