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.
Good job we don’t get in a flap, as our water rescue team from Tamworth has been called to Branston Water Park to help rescue a stuck duck! It seems to have got stranded some way from the bank on the frozen water. We’ll take a quack at getting it back safely! pic.twitter.com/OtO3OmJnjU
