A man has been hailed a hero after going head first into a sewage drain to rescue a tiny duckling.

The baby bird had become trapped in the drain, and the man enlists the help of two friends to hold him by the legs and lower him inside so he can rescue it.

He roots around for a few seconds before finding the little duckling and re-emerging triumphant with the animal.



According to the Mirror, people on Reddit are now trying to track down the hero who "risked life and limb" to rescue the cute creature.

One user on the site commented: "The grateful duckling now thinks he's its mother and won't leave him alone."

While this is a cute story, not all ducklings rescues have a happy ending. In June 2014, a Canadian woman was found guilty of causing the deaths of two drivers that hit her car when she stopped on a motorway to rescue two ducklings.

According to the Independent, a motorcyclist and his daughter hit the back of Emma Czornobaj's car in June 2010, when she stopped on a Quebec highway to avoid hitting the ducklings. The paper added that she thought the animals were not with their mother and she wanted to take them home.
