Tamworth Fire Crews rescue duck from frozen lake

Wednesday, 30th January 2019

FIRE crews from Tamworth came to the rescue of a duck who had got stranded on a frozen lake earlier today (Wednesday).

The Water Rescue Team from Tamworth Community Fire Statioin as well as the crew from Burton deployed to Branston Water park to have a ‘quack’ at rescuing the duck that was stuck some distance from the bank.

A firefighter wearing specialis clothing and tied to a safety rope waded in to the ice cold water to save the duck.

Sadly, there was not prize for this hook-a-duck other than a warm fuzzy feeling of human kindness.
