Duck Family Gets Help Crossing Busy Street

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - A momma duck and her six little ducklings are safe after a couple of south St. Louis neighbors come to the rescue. Sports radio host Brian McKenna, and his neighbor Barb, stopped traffic on Nottingham Avenue in the St. Louis Hills neighborhood so the ducks could cross safely.

Momma knew right where she was going — straight to the pond in Francis Park. Somehow the little family of ducks had got stranded in McKenna's fenced in back yard so he made sure they go where they needed to go.
