Officer saves ducklings

Monday, February 28, 2011

Approximately ten ducklings became stranded in one of the busy middle turn lanes of Colonial Blvd. where it meets US 41 on Wednesday afternoon. They huddled together, separated from their mother duck as she watched helplessly from across the street.

The ducklings faced almost certain death, until Ft. Myers Police Officer Glenn Eppler just happened to drive up.

"This job, you never know what you're going to see," Eppler tells WINK News. "I saw the baby ducks and thought of my daughter. She loves ducks. She's ten and I could hear her in my ear saying, 'get out and save those ducks.'"

So that's what Eppler did. He pulled into the lane to block traffic, turned on his lights, and went to round up the tiny ducklings.
