Brunswick police stopped traffic at the intersection of Stanwood and Pleasant Streets Thursday morning to allow a family of ducks to safely cross the street.

"With the asistance of the Patrol Division, Criminal Investigators, School Resource Officer, Parking, and Animal Control, we were able to shut down traffic, rescue the ducklng, and make sure the entire family made it safely to the river's edge!" the Brunswick Police Department said in a Facebook post.

Police said one of the ducklings had fallen into a storm drain, but they were able to rescue the duckling while the road was closed.

"We apologize for having to temporarily close the roads, but people seemed much more forgiving for the delay when they watched the family of ducks make it safely across!"
