Nailbiter of the Day: Ducks crossing a five-lane motorway

This was one lucky escape for a mother duck and her flock of baby ducklings.

SHIELD YOUR EYES if you’re a bit on the jumpy side as this video is sure to have you on the edge of your seat.

This mammy duck and baby ducklings decided to have a quiet afternoon stroll – not in the park – but across a five-lane highway in Toronto. Spoiler: they make it!

Even after a couple of strong gusts from high speeding cars that knock the ducklings over, they manage to re-group and get to the other side.

Phew, that was a close one!
