A mother duck and her ducklings managed to cross a busy Madison street safely thanks to the help of a police officer.

The ducks were likely headed to Lake Monona during Tuesday's rush hour, and were trying to make it across a busy Williamson Street.

Fortunately, MPD Sgt. David Samson was there to help. He brought traffic to a temporary standstill, and coordinated the ducks' safe passage.

He recorded the moment on his cell phone. You can watch the video by clicking HERE.
